We never know when accidents are going to happen, and The Yorkshire Air Ambulance has saved many lives over the years. As well as personally knowing people who have been on the receiving end of their excellent service, I have an increasing number of guests at Newton House who like to go walking in the beautiful countryside around Knaresborough and in the Yorkshire Dales. It’s good to know the YAA is there for them, and I am very pleased to be able to help with our donation.
