Wetherby Whaler gives Air Ambulance a £10,000 lift



Yorkshire-based fish and chip chain Wetherby Whaler has handed over a cheque to Yorkshire Air Ambulance for £10,000, taking the grand total it has collected for the charity since 2011 to over £28,000.


With outlets in Guiseley, Pudsey, Wakefield, Wetherby and York, staff have held various events over the past 12 months to raise the money, including bake sales, raffles and family fun days.

The Yorkshire Air Ambulance is an independent charity providing a life saving rapid response emergency service to five million people across the whole of Yorkshire. The service, which is operational seven days a week, 365 days a year, needs £12,000 every single day to function.

YAA Director of Fundraising, Garry Wilkinson, said: “As an independent charity we are so grateful for the fantastic support we receive from businesses such as the Wetherby Whaler and the wonderful people of Yorkshire. Wetherby Whaler have continued to support the Charity over the years and have raised a fantastic amount which will go directly towards helping to save lives across the region. We’d like to thank the staff and customers for their support and making their charity night such a huge success!”

Caroline Murphy, director of Wetherby Whaler, adds: “The Yorkshire Air Ambulance provides vital and lifesaving services throughout the region, and we are delighted to continue our backing of such a fantastic cause.

“Our staff and customers have done a fantastic job in organising and supporting fundraising events over the course of the last seven years and we have managed to raise a significant amount of money in that time.”
