‘Yorkshire Air Ambulance fundraising award for local band


The Heritage Boys, Andy Burton, Peter Johnson and Ian Whitaker were delighted to receive an ‘Outstanding Fundraising Award’ from Yorkshire Air Ambulance Chairman Peter Sunderland at a ceremony at The Devonshire Arms, Bolton Abbey on 19th September.

The Heritage Boys, who all live near Harrogate and play and sing mainly 1960s’ music, have raised nearly £19,000 for YAA at more than 40 events since the start of 2015.  They began performing in 2013 and have played at a total of nearly 70 events in Yorkshire, the south of England and overseas.

Taking no payment for themselves, they only raise money for YAA and other local charities, with a total raised so far of nearly £43,000.  At private events they request a donation for YAA and at public events such as village hall fundraisers they ask that at least 25% of the profit go to YAA.
