Back in June, YCC’s Fundraising and Communications Coordinator, Lynne Haigh, went the extra mile and flew over 3000ft in the air to be interviewed by private pilot, and director of Digital Energy Agency, Daniel Todd.
Daniel of Digital Energy Agency is one of YCC’s corporate partners and is aware of the support our charity needs and the impact our services have on the lives of those living in and around Kirklees. So, earlier this summer he invited Lynne to take on her first small flight experience and be a part of his ‘On-Air Club’ Podcast to talk all things YCC.
The flight took off from Sherburn-in-Elmet airfield and the pair took in breath-taking views of the Yorkshire countryside, flying over Harrogate, York and even reaching the Humber Bridge.
Despite feeling some motion sickness, Lynne enjoyed her experience which was all for a good cause. Lynne said, “It was a glorious day which meant we were able to fly for over an hour and got to see landmarks like York Minster and the Humber Bridge! The aim of the video was to raise awareness for the charity whilst also having a fun day out and it was great to be able to discuss the amazing work YCC does and the people we support! I just wish I hadn’t felt as queasy towards the end!!”
When YCC thanked Daniel for the fantastic opportunity to enable us to reach out to more families, and supporters, Daniel said, “I chose to interview YCC as they’re a charity that are close to our hearts and have a fantastic cause. I had a great time chatting with Lynne about the amazing work the charity does and hope that we can continue to provide support in the future – the podcast is an extension of that!”
