Local women raising funds for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance Service

Visitors to Goathland may be familiar with the bookstall which Cath Jenkinson ( pictured middle) runs from her home close to the car park. Over the years she has raised thousands of pounds for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance Service.
Cath is supported by the whole village and surrounding areas who return their used books to sell on the stall.
Now two newcomers to the village Jean Cassell and Barbara Collins have been inspired by Cath’s efforts and have signed up to complete a skydive on Sunday 17th September on behalf of the charity.
The Yorkshire Air Ambulance Service relies heavily on the generosity of individuals and organisations to help save lives across Yorkshire. With the exception of paramedics and doctors who are seconded from the NHS it is funded entirely by donations and has to raise £19,000 each day to keep both of its air ambulances in the air. As a rapid response air emergency service the charity serves a population of approximately 5 million people across 3 million acres and delivers an advanced trauma team to Yorkshire’s most seriously injured patients.
If you would like to support the YAA and  our fundraising women the links are listed below.
Alternatively come along and join us for a fundraising barbecue being held on Saturday 23rd September 12-4pm at the Goathland Village Community Hut ( close to the railway station and behind the Goathland Hotel).
All are welcome for barbecue, bar, refreshments, cakes and tombola.
