Courier specialist Dynamic Despatch is helping with a very special delivery to keep Yorkshire’s Air Ambulance on the move.
The Leeds-based courier company was asked by Yorkshire Air Ambulance (YAA) to transport pilot helmets from its Wakefield base to West Sussex for regular safety testing.
The special cargo is collected one or two times each month and carefully couriered by next day delivery to Headset Services Limited which supplies the aviation industry with headsets and flying helmets of all kinds.
Dynamic Despatch was more than happy to help and offered to transport the helmets free of charge.
The company, which offers round the clock services both across the UK and internationally, has since joined Yorkshire Air Ambulance’s Yorkshire Business Supporters Network’.
The scheme is designed to encourage more businesses to become brand partners of the YAA.
Andrew Edwards, managing director of Dynamic Despatch, said:
“Yorkshire Air Ambulance is a tremendous asset to this region. We are proud we’re able to support the charity and play a part in ensuring its safety.
“At Dynamic Despatch we understand the need for rapid response, safety and reliability and when Yorkshire Air Ambulance contacted us we didn’t hesitate in saying we would help.”
Neale Jacobs, office and 0perations manager for YAA, said:
“The service that Dynamic Despatch are providing to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance is invaluable.
“We have around 25 helmets that need servicing down South each year – having to pay to have them couriered there and back each time would become extremely costly for the Charity, but with the help of Dynamic Despatch we are able to avoid these costs.
“We cannot thank them enough for their generosity and support. As an independent charity, gestures such as this are extremely important to us.”
