Giggleswick School has won the Yorkshire Air Ambulance’s Schools Fundraising Award for North Yorkshire after raising around £13,000 for the charity.
The award was presented during the helicopter rescue charity’s regional awards afternoon which recognised the hard work and efforts of all volunteers, fundraisers, corporate sponsors and local organisations who have worked to raise awareness and money to keep the air ambulance flying.
Giggleswick School’s director of sport, Dan Cook, received the award on behalf of the leading northern independent school. He said:
“We have raised thousands of pounds for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance mainly through sports dinners and other sporting events held at the school.
“In our location lots of people depend on a service such as this and will never know when they may need to use it. Giggleswick School is very proud to receive this award and will continue to support this worthwhile cause.”
