JAMES POTTER’S EGG-CELLENT LINK UP FOR YORKSHIRE AIR AMBULANCE
Yorkshire-based free-range egg company, James Potter, is on a mission to help keep the Yorkshire Air Ambulance (YAA) in the air, while keeping free-range eggs firmly on the nation’s tables.
James Potter will be donating 1p from every pack of their dozen free-range eggs to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, which requires £7200 a day to keep their two helicopters in the air. The charity relies solely on the generosity of the public to maintain this lifesaving service which serves a population of approximately five million.
The partnership was launched on 14th June, with Director James Potter and MP for Thirsk, Malton and Filey, Anne McIntosh welcoming the Yorkshire Air Ambulance to the farm, accompanied by one of their free range hens. The family-run business, which started with a few hens so Mrs Potter could have eggs “the way they used to taste”, has grown over the past 30 years and now has 200,000 hens producing the finest free range eggs, available in ASDA, Tesco and Sainsbury stores across the region.
Director James Potter said: “We are proud to support the vital work that the Yorkshire Air Ambulance does and hope that the money raised through this partnership helps make a real difference across the region.”
