At the beginning of each year, St Johns chooses a charity that is close to our hearts to support and fundraise for. Throughout 2020 and 2021, we are proud to be supporting Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
In 2019, St Johns supported Leeds Mind by fundraising and raising awareness of the services they provide. Through hard work, dedication and the support of the customers and tenants, we were able to raise £4,301! We are so incredibly proud of everyone who got involved and grateful to all those who sponsored our events. Over the two years we worked with Leeds Mind, we raised a total of £8,079.
In 2020/21, we are embarking on a new adventure in supporting Yorkshire Air Ambulance, with a target of £4,500 by the end of 2021, we hope you will support us over the next 2 years.
Yorkshire Air Ambulance is an extremely vital service that is completely reliant on the generosity of the individuals and organisations that support them. In order to keep the Air Ambulances operational, the charity needs £12,000 per day.
Throughout the year, we will be hosting fundraising events in the centre, running awareness campaigns on social media and also undergoing a challenge, where the team will be completing a 12km obstacle course through mud and water. We will be updating you on everything that we’re doing so we hope you will support us and follow our efforts on Facebook, Instagram and within the centre.
If our hard work and the funds we raise could help fund just one day of Yorkshire Air Ambulance’s operation or aid in saving someone’s life, we feel that we could say that we are making a difference.
We hope that you will help us to support such an incredible cause.
We are thrilled to announce our Yorkshire Air Ambulance pop up shop in the centre located on the lower mall!
Please come and show your support. They have beautiful hand knitted items, YAA merchandise as well as a fantastic range of TOG 24 clothing.
