A CHARITY bed push which took place on a swelteringly hot day has raised hundreds of pounds for flying medics.

The fundraiser was organised by Mick Collins along with Betty and Steve Lyon, who run the Cavalier pub in Ravenfield. 

The event, in aid of Yorkshire Air Ambulance raised £602 from generous passerby’s who added to the bucket collection.

The team of ten bedpushers left the Cavalier at 10.30am, and took in an eight-mile route through Bramley, Wickerlsey and Brecks as temperatures soared.

Janet Collins said: “We had quite a few people pulling up and donating. A nice guy pulled up and donated ice pops.”

The bed push ended back at the pub where there was a fun day taking place which saw 12 bands perform.

Janet added: “As part of the fundraising, two guys from the pub also did a sponsored yomp — an 80-mile walk from North Yorkshire.

“They set off on Thursday morning and arrived at the pub on Saturday morning.”
