Howden Rotary Club has made a cheque presentation to Yorkshire Air Ambulance after helping to raise money for the charity during an annual fundraising walk earlier this year.

The club’s president, David Watson welcomed Yorkshire Air Ambulance’s regional fundraiser, Keiron Hardwick to had over the cheque for £3500, after the money was raised by kindhearted fundraisers during the annual Dawn Walk which was attended by over 40 people back in April. Speaking on behalf of the charity, regional fundraiser Keiron said: “Yorkshire Air Ambulance is an independent charity providing a lifesaving rapid response emergency service to five million people across the whole of Yorkshire. “To keep both of our air ambulance helicopters maintained and in the air, we need to raise £19,000 every single day. The generosity that we receive really is the lifeblood of our Charity and therefore we are extremely grateful for the support of Howden Rotary Club.” Howden Rotary Club president, David Watson added: “The money was raised at this year’s sponsored Dawn Walk in memory of Goole Rotarian Hughie Walton and in aid of YAA being organised with the Walton family and Goole Rotarians. A huge thank you to everyone that sponsored the walkers and those involved in the day, we are delighted to raise so much for such a worthwhile cause.” More information about Yorkshire Air Ambulance is available on its website by visiting:
