  • Jockeys, trainers, owners and point-to-point fans across Yorkshire have raised more than £6,000 to aid the life-saving work carried out by the county’s air ambulance.

    The helicopter has been scrambled several times from its base at Leeds-Bradford airport over the past year to rescue riders who have been injured on the racecourse, on the gallops or out hunting.

    The campaign was launched in January at the Yorkshire Area Point-to-Point Club meeting at Sheriff Hutton and money has been raised through sponsorship, gate money, a bucket collection and a barbeque.
