Your chance to own a bit of cycling history

Rising cycling star Harry Tanfield has donated a signed jersey from his history-making Tour de Yorkshire race to help raise funds for the region’s air ambulance service. Harry, 23, became the first Briton to win a stage at the Tour de Yorkshire when he crossed the line first on day one of the hugely successful event, which started in Beverley.

The Yorkshire-born cyclist told Beverley FM: “Being a cyclist, I know just how important the air ambulance service is. They are always there and a lot of cyclists have very good reason to be grateful for that.” Yorkshire Air Ambulance is a charity serving 5 million people across the county and carries out moire than 1,300 missions every year. It needs to raise £12,000 every day to keep its two, state-of-the-art helicopters flying.

Lin Stead, Community Fundraiser at the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, told us they had put a reserve of £100 on the jersey and were inviting sealed bids above that figure by the deadline of 12 noon on Friday June 22nd. Anyone interested can contact Louise Shorrock on 01422 237900 or by emailing l.shorrock@yaa.org.uk.
