Coronavirus: Project at Ripon Cathedral supports Yorkshire Air Ambulance

Coronavirus: Project at Ripon Cathedral supports Yorkshire Air Ambulance

Published by Lisa Darvill at 8:58am 10th May 2020.

Ripon Cathedral is working alongside Yorkshire Air Ambulance with its ‘Wing and a Prayer’ project.  

  • The project will fundraise for the YAA 
  • People are being asked to donate an 'angel' 
  • For each donation made, a paper angel will be put on display at the cathedral 

People are asked to donate ‘an angel’ to be placed inside the cathedral in honour of those who are sacrificing so much to keep the country safe.

For each donation made, a paper angel will be put on display in the nave of Ripon Cathedral. 

Margaret Hammond, Development Manager at Ripon Cathedral said:

“We are delighted that the Yorkshire Air Ambulance have agreed to partner with Ripon Cathedral to offer a way of individuals praying for their heroes or remembering loved ones.  At the same time we look forward to raising funds to help keep the YAA flying at this difficult time and to support the work of Ripon Cathedral in the community”. 

Whilst donating an angel, people can also request a prayer.

People are also being encouraged to spread appreciation for all keyworkers by sharing the angels on social media, and in windows of their homes to show their creativity by decorating them however they wish.

Ripon Cathedral says it felt very strongly about working with Yorkshire Air Ambulance as many of the Charity’s crew are currently working on the frontline to help protect Yorkshire every day.

Helen Callear, Director of Fundraising (North and East) for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, said:

“We are delighted to have been chosen as the charity partner for the ‘A Wing and a Prayer Project’ at Ripon Cathedral. This is a project very close to our charity’s heart and with event cancellations and fundraising activities on hold, the YAA need all the support we can get to keep our helicopters in the air and saving lives across the region.”
