OE ELECTRICS RAISE £770 FOR YORKSHIRE AIR AMBULANCEMember News
Following a tremendous day out at the Rotary Dragon Boat Challenge, and an arguably more tremendous effort from our team here at OE Electrics, we can proudly say that we raised an incredible £770 for our chosen charity, Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
The event, held at Pugneys Country Park, saw 36 teams race over the course of the day. Battling not just each other, but the unwelcome 30-degree heat – all in the name of charity – our team of Wakefield-based manufacturers (Team ‘We Need OE’) finished 26th of 36 teams – a great achievement for a boat-full of newbies.
From our rowing team to those who couldn’t find their sea legs manning equally important food and games stalls – it was a huge success!
Until next year!
A Bit About Our Chosen Charity: Yorkshire Air Ambulance
As a Yorkshire-born company, it’s important to us that we give back to our local community, hence our chosen charity. Yorkshire Air Ambulance is a helicopter emergency service unit for the Yorkshire and Humber region. The funding of which, relies solely on the donations of individuals and organisations. The swift medical interventions provided by the Air Ambulance crews, from remote, rural areas to major motorways, have a major impact on a patient’s chance of survival.
