Wine circle helps air ambulance

mytholmroyd Coiners Wine Circle has presented Yorkshire Air Ambulance with close to £1,600.

Nearly £600 was raised for the Elland-based charity at an auction held at Mytholmroyd Cricket Club.

Around 56 wine circle members and their guests attended the event, where they heard a presentation about Yorkshire Air Ambulance’s work by fund-raising presenter Katie Collinson.

Another £1,000 came from the St James’s Place Foundation after wine circle members put in a successful bid for funding.

The cash will help pay for extra laptops and projectors to be used by Yorkshire Air Ambulance’s team of fund-raising presenters.
