The lucky prize winners of our 2017 Prize Draw enjoyed a luxurious lunch courtesy of Raithwaite Estate, Whitby followed by a dream flight along the North Yorkshire coast and fields by private helicopter!
Mike and Jackie Asson, from New Earswick near York, were collected by Wetwheels Yorkshire chairman Peter Richardson and driven to a private airfield near Octon, East Yorkshire in preparation for their flight to Raithwaite Estate.
Unfortunately the windy, wet conditions lead to a variation in plans and our intrepid VIPs were happy to change to 'plan b' and be driven to Whitby for lunch whilst weather conditions improved.
Following a couple of hours spent enjoying the amazing hospitality of one of Yorkshire's most luxurious retreats Mike and Jackie were chauffeured to the Raithaite Heli site and whisked away along the coast to experience a once in lifetime trip in an R44 Helicopter courtesy of Capt Mark Pearson.
Their flight took in Whitby, Robin Hood's Bay, Filey and Scarborough before turning inland and exploring the vibrant countryside of North Yorkshire with a patchwork of green fields, golden wheat and hidden hamlets.
Following a smooth flight and a gentle landing Jackie commented that this was her first flight EVER! Both Mike and Jackie thoroughly enjoyed their day and are keen supporters of Wetwheels Yorkshire. They can't wait to see what we Raffle next!!
A gentle drive home in the sunshine was a lovely end to a perfect day.
Wetwheels Yorkshire would like to thank the staff and owners of Raithwaite Estate for their remarkable hospitality and TradeWise for sponsoring this event in support of Wetwheels Yorkshire
