Irwin Mitchell Support The Yorkshire Air Ambulance Charity

Specialist Serious Injury Lawyers Show Their Support To Local Charity


Irwin Mitchell’s Serious Injury team based in Leeds are holding a special charity awareness day on Friday 3 July in aid of the Yorkshire Air Ambulance (YAA) charity.

To show their support and to coincide with the YAA, Yellow Yorkshire Day, employees are asked to pick something yellow out of their wardrobes to wear on the day and to also donate.

The Yorkshire Air Ambulance Charity relies on the generosity of individuals and organisations to help save lives across Yorkshire. To keep both Yorkshire air ambulances in the air the charity need £12,000 per day which is equivalent to £4.4 million per year.

As a rapid response air emergency service, the charity serves a population of approximately 5 million people across the Yorkshire region and recently announced plans to purchase another air ambulance to help meet demands in the area.

Irwin Mitchell’s Leeds office has supported the YAA charity for a number of years and know through their work, what a difference the charity makes.

Expert Opinion
“Here at Irwin Mitchell in Leeds, we are proud to be raising awareness and vital funds for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance Services.

“Through our work, we see first hand how important the air ambulance services are to Yorkshire. The team can quickly respond to someone who is critically injured, this quick response rate from the team can determine life or death situations and is a vital emergency service protecting each and everyone of us here in Yorkshire.

“The growing demand in the region has recently seen the YAA announce plans to purchase another air ambulance, therefore this day held in our Yorkshire office is all in aid of supporting this endeavour.”
