Prize appeal for RAF auction

Have your say

BIG-HEARTED business folk and residents across South Yorkshire are being urged to donate prizes for a charity auction.

The Yorkshire Universities Air Squadron - students who have joined the Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve - are hosting the event to boost Yorkshire Air Ambulance, Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice and the RAF Benevolent Fund.

It takes place on June 15 in RAF Linton-on-Ouse near York.

Sheffield student and officer cadet Helen Scholey said: “We just want to raise as much money as we can because the RAF has strong links with charities.”

Last year’s auction raised £700,000 in a single night. To donate a prize email before Friday, June 8.
