The Provincial Grand Primo of the RAOB Wharfedale Province for 2012 was Bro J A Cartwright ROH. He decided as his charity effort for the year to collect for Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
On Tuesday, January 29, at the Mason Lodge, held in the Grove Hill Club he presented a cheque for £1,900 to Gerry Sayers, the representative for Yorkshire Air Ambulance, after first thanking all Buffs and the over 60s bingo players at the Labour Rooms on a Monday afternoon who had been very supportive.
Mrs Sayers gave a speech of thanks and said how helpful such a large amount of money would be.
She also spoke about how she came to be involved with the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
After the meeting was finished we tucked into corned beef hash and Yorkshire puddings, a very enjoyable evening was had by all.
