Yorkshire Air Ambulance has advised supporters about confusing literature posted in areas of Halifax.

Earlier this week leaflets were dropped in Northowram which asked residents to donate clothing to the Air Ambulance Service recycling service.

The YAA, which is based in Elland, is keen to emphasise that they have no affiliation with the Air Ambulance service and that the scheme advertised is not related to the YAA’s Bag It Up Ltd scheme.

Katie Collinson, from the YAA, said material distributed about the YAA recycling scheme are fully branded with the logo, charity number and full contact details.

“We would like to clarify to all of our supporters that the YAA has no links whatsoever to Air Ambulance Service, not have we ever been involved with them.

“Our official recycling partner is Bag It Up Ltd, which operates our regional scheme on our behalf.

“We would also like to clarify that we do not operate a doorstep collection service.

“We encourage supporters to donate unwanted textiles in their nearest YAA recycling bank at various locations across Calderdale.” she said.

The YAA has been raising funds through the Bag It Up Ltd scheme for five years and has raised more than £1 million.
