Potters of Yorkshire has raised £50,000 with every purchase of a dozen of their free range eggs seeing 1p donated to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

The Yorkshire Air Ambulance serves 5 million people across Yorkshire and carries out over 1,250 missions every year.

The charity are soon to replace their current ageing helicopters with two, brand new state-of-the-art Airbus H145 helicopters which are set to take to the skies later this year.

The H145 is night capable, enabling longer flying hours, and is used by military, police and air rescue services throughout the world.
