MEMBERS of a local metal detecting society have donated funds to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

Several members from the Bridlington Metal Detecting Society met up with Bob Smailes, regional fundraising manager for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, to present a cheque for £350 towards the charity’s operating costs.

During the year the society have made two separate donations of £150 to St Catherine’s Hospice – a total of £650 raised for named charities this year.

The funds were raised by holding detecting rallies throughout the year along with Bridlington Quay Metal Detecting Society, and with kind permission of local farmers and landowners.
