Generous residents in Knottingley have clubbed together to raise £2,000 for a life-saving charity.
Rockware Sports and Social Club, on Weeland Road, has spent the past year raising much needed cash for Yorkshire Air Ambulance .
It was chosen by members of the club as its charity of the year and they have organised a number of events to help support its work.
Stewardess Sally Baines said: “We’ve had all sorts of stuff going off to raise money. We’ve had various raffles, some people did Movember and grew moustaches. We also had a swear tin on the bar and there was about £400 in that.”
The club also had a Christmas raffle to help raise money for the charity.
Staff presented the cash to Yorkshire Air Ambulance last month.
Mrs Baines added: “We didn’t expect to raise this much at all. It’s a great effort by everyone.”
Kerry Garner, West Yorkshire regional fundraiser at Yorkshire Air Ambulance, said: “On behalf of the Yorkshire Air Ambulance I would like to say a big thank you to the club for raising a fantastic amount of money. It will go a long way towards keeping our two air ambulances going.”
