Linedancers have given the Yorkshire Air Ambulance a welcomed lift.

The Outlaw and Inlaws lindancing group have helped to raise £1,890 for the charity despite missing the whole of January last year due to illness.

The group has been in the area for the last 16 years and since 2004 they have been raising much needed funds for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance mainly through monthly raffles at their classes in Brighouse, Lightcliffe and Wyke.

Funds are also raised by the sale of books, greetings cards, vegetables, donations and a loose change jar which adds a fair amount ot the pot.

Ron and Wendy Huckerby who live in Lightcliffe said: “Since 2004 we have raised a total of £15,860 which is down to the continual generosity of our class members to whom we give our sincere thanks. These donations couldn’t happen without them.”
