Yorkshire Air Ambulance is an independent Charity needing to raise £7,200 per day to keep both of Yorkshire’s air ambulances in the air and maintained. This is equivalent to £2.65million each year. The Yorkshire Air Ambulance provides a life saving rapid response emergency service to 5 million people across 4 million acres of Yorkshire. We operate two helicopters, G-SASH and G-CEMS from Leeds Bradford International Airport and Sheffield Business Park The service is operational 365 days a year. Patients are transferred to the most relevant treatment centre, flying at speeds of up to 160mph. The Yorkshire Air Ambulance was the first air ambulance in the UK to own and operate a dedicated air desk for dispatch of the helicopters Since coming online in 2000, over 3000 patients have been carried to relevant treatment centres.
Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice provides support to children in South Yorkshire,North Derbyshire,North Nottinghamshire and North East Lincolnshire with life limiting conditions, which means the child is not expected to live into adulthood. We estimate that there are 500 children in this region who could benefit from our support. Our hospice is a relaxed and happy place where families can take a break, have fun and get help with the care they need. We also assist children and their families in their own homes. Our support includes ongoing medical respite care for the poorly child, practical and emotional support for family members, sibling and bereavement support and end of life care. It costs £3 million annually to provide this service, and with no statutory government funding, fundraising and public support is vital to our success.
