Company continues with support of Yorkshire Air Ambulance
9:00am Saturday 26th January 2013 in Local news
One of the Yorkshire Air Ambulance’s longest-standing corporate supporters has vowed to continue to support the charity for a further five years with services worth over £170,000. SICL, a Leeds technology company, provides the Charity with IT support, services and infrastructure – which it will continue to do until at least 2018.
Neale Jacobs, Operations Manager for the YAA said: “As an independent Charity, having support from companies such as SICL is invaluable. They have saved us over £125,000 over the last five years which is a huge sum of money for the YAA, so to have their continued support, which this time is worth over £170,000, is phenomenal. This is equivalent to keeping us flying for over three weeks.”
“We have to fundraise each and every day of the year to keep the Charity running, so savings of this nature really are significant.
“They allow us to spend donated funds on keeping both of the helicopters maintained and in the air saving lives.”
