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.

Finally, the evening ended with the ever popular raffle and guess-the helicopter-landing site game and tea with Maggie Barraclough’s outstanding cream scones all of which, along with ticket money and YAA merchandise sales raised the magnificent sum of £732 on the night.

On a dank evening, over fifty people from the dale and visitors sang carols on the village green with varying degrees of lustiness, the volume increasing noticeably with the consumption of some excellent mulled cider and mince pies!
Oh, Come all Ye Faithful!
As a result, £270 was collected (including £50 from a whip round of the customers in Abbey Stores) for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, a very worthy cause as there were several visits to Rosedale by the distinctive yellow helicopters of the service in 2017.
Thanks to all who contributed so generously and to Adrian and Diane Crawford for again leading the singing so ably. The same again next year?
