Many of you may of heard of the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, even if you don't live in Yorkshire, they were involved with the airlift of Richard Hammond when he had that awful accident a few years back and he brought them much publicity nationwide with his fundraising efforts. Did you know that they need to raise £7200 a day to keep both air ambulances maintained and up in the air 7 days a week 365 days a year? Well the YAA is something close to my heart because it is so close to the heart of my special buddy Emma. Many of you probably know Emma (aka Crafty Emma) and remember that back last year on the 15th September her dad died after an horrific accident at work. The Yorkshire Air Ambulance were involved in airlifting him to hospital. Though very sadly Ronnie didn't pull through Emma and her family want to raise money for YAA in memory of Ronnie. Now Emma has a few fundraising events coming up but is kick starting them today with a very special challenge involving this special fella....
Meet Ronnie...Paula from Pollycraft kindly drew this special edition image for Emma in memory of her dad, he is available to purchase from the Pollycraft Shop or from Emma for just £1.50, all proceeds will go to YAA, every single penny!! I have purchased Ronnie this morning and couldn't wait to get a card made up..
I was lucky to of met Ronnie briefly a couple of times, and after just those brief times I could tell he was one top bloke and can see why he was so special to all his family and friends.
Now along with the release of the image Emma is running a challenge with some AWESOME prizes to be won, to enter you will have had to purchase the 'Ronnie' image and use him on your card.
So hop on over now to Emma's Blog and find out all the details!!
