A fundraising event for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance was held in the Updale Reading Room on Friday evening, 9 March 2018. The event started off with an introduction by Kevin Hutchinson from the YAA, who explained the role, operating methods and the funding of the service, summarising it by saying that Yorkshire had five million people, four million acres, three thousand pounds per call-out for each the services’s two helicopters, so if everyone in the county gave just one pound per year the YAA would be fully funded!

After that, the Updale Nature Recorder gave a fascinating slide show tour of the flora and fauna of the dale, from sneezeworts to snakes to snow buntings and much else in between.
