Charity Fundraisers Inject some Colour into Go Yellow Week!
The Essex Air Ambulance fundraising team get colourful during a yellow powder paint fight to launch Go Yellow 2014! Starting off in pure white, fundraisers Sabi and Jenny were soon coated head to toe in yellow. The battle took place at North Weald Airfield, the home of our sister aircraft the Herts Air Ambulance, as the Crew cheered them on from a safe distance.
The fun stunt is to raise awareness for National Air Ambulance Week in September and encourage registrations for the Charity’s Go Yellow campaign. The week takes place from Monday 22nd to Sunday 28th September and will raise both awareness and funds for the County’s ‘YELLOW’ life-saving helicopter.
The Charity is inviting schools, businesses, groups and individuals to take part by doing anything to Go Yellow during the week. You don’t have to get as messy as our fundraisers: wear a yellow item of clothing or have a non-uniform day, sell yellow cakes or put on a yellow themed quiz or party to raise funds for Essex Air Ambulance. Anything yellow goes! Could you challenge your work colleagues or teachers to a lemon eating competition?!
Sabi Blyth, Essex Air Ambulance Senior Fundraising Coordinator said: “It was so much fun doing our Go Yellow paint fight, even though it took me three baths to get all the paint out of my hair!! We really want people to have fun with this, so every yellow-themed idea is welcome. If you have any crazy ideas of what you would like to do, get in touch and we can advise you on how we might be able to help. Registering today will help us to keep our life-saving helicopter flying, by raising vital funds and awareness.”
The Essex Air Ambulance receives no direct Government or National Lottery funding, and relies on the generosity of the people who live and work in Essex to continue to save lives.
