Fund-raising keeps ambulance airborne
Article date: 07 Feb 2011

Managers, staff and customers from all six Wetherspoon pubs in Leeds, as well as The Bowling Green, in Otley, took part in a sponsored walk and cycle event.

A total of 25 fund-raisers, from Becketts Bank, Stick or Twist, Wetherspoons (in Leeds City Station), The Cuthbert Brodrick, The Hedley Verity and The Three Hulats (in Chapel Allerton), collected £2,500 for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

The walkers completed 25 miles from The Three Hulats to The Bowling Green and back, while the cyclists pedalled the same route twice.

Maria Church (pictured third left), pub manager at The Three Hulats and the event’s organiser, said: “We organise a charity event every year, to support a local community project. This year, we chose the Yorkshire Air Ambulance which receives no funding at all for its amazing work.

“Thank you to everyone for their efforts and generosity, as we were able to hand over £2,500 to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance at the Leeds Bradford Airport.”
