11:00am Saturday 9th March 2013 in News
Staff at The Co-operative Food in Burley-in-Wharfedale have raised £650 for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
Members of staff from the store hosted a series of in-store fundraising events, to reach the grand total.
Fundraising activity has included store raffles and a Christmas fair, with members of staff and customers really getting behind the activities.
James Williment, store manager at Burley-in-Wharfedale, said: “As a community retailer, it is vital that we support local causes. The work the Yorkshire Air Ambulance does is so valuable and I am thrilled that we are able to help to raise funds to help the charity.
“We couldn’t have raised such a fantastic amount of money without the support of our customers and we want to give a big thanks to everyone who has donated.”
