Birthday celebrations for a Knaresborough woman have helped to raise nearly £700 for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance. Betty Jackson, of Charlton Drive, was joined by family, friends and even the Mayor of Knaresborough for an 80th birthday party at Knaresborough Football Club last Saturday evening.
But instead of birthday presents, she asked for donations and her generosity has helped to raise £680.
“I am delighted that my family and friends raised this money for the air ambulance service and that they all had a fantastic time,” she said. “Thanks to everyone who made the evening possible with special thanks to the staff at Knaresborough Football Club. God willing we will all do it again for my 90th.”
