Doncaster College Registry staff have raised an exceptional £1,103 to go to their chosen charity, Yorkshire Air Ambulance (YAA).
Each academic year Registry staff choose a designated charity and run a series of fund raising events throughout the year.
Events throughout the year included bake sales, tombola’s and raffles. As well as all the baking, buying and eating they have also sold YAA merchandise, hosted a Christmas Jumper day and an Easter raffle enlisting the help from fellow departments to provide prizes.
Kelly Jarvis and Cath Brooksbank, from the Registry team along with their friend Samantha Brooke also decided to do their first ever half marathon this year and raised sponsorship from family, friends and colleagues to add to the grand total.
The organisers of the events are extremely pleased with the amount raised and are very proud of all who took part as this would not have been possible without the support from their colleagues.
Mark Perry, Yorkshire Air Ambulance’s South Yorkshire Regional fundraiser said: ‘Thank you to everyone involved from the Registry team and for the fantastic donation, Yorkshire Air Ambulance has carried more than 5,600 people in its 13-year history. It needs to raise £9,990 each day to keep its two helicopters in the air and maintained - equivalent to £3.6 million each year. Without the support of the local community we would not be able to fly the lifesaving missions we carry out on a daily basis’.
