Leeds & District Medico-Legal Society raises £3,000 for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance

The impressive amount was raised during the raffle at the recent Leeds & District Medico-Legal Ball in March. The Yorkshire Air Ambulance is a charity, which relies on the generosity of individuals and organisations to help save lives across Yorkshire. The charity was first set up in 2000, with the addition of a second Air Ambulance in 2007. The swift medical interventions provided by the Air Ambulance crews have a major impact on a patient’s chance of survival and subsequent quality of life. Leila Benyounes, Anna Datta (Lectures and Events Secretary) and John Pearn (Honorary Treasurer) were given a tour of Nostell Air Support Unit by members of the air ambulance crew. Kerry Garner, West & South Yorkshire Regional Fundraising Manager said “We are extremely grateful to be chosen as the charity at this year’s Medico-Legal Ball. It was a fantastic evening, everyone was really generous. The money will go towards the day to day running costs of the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, £3,000 is the cost of one mission so thank you again.” Yorkshire Evening Post News Item
