RAIL enthusiasts came up with a festive season boost for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance by holding a raffle at their Christmas lunch.

Members of the Friends of Settle to Carlisle Line raised £300 for the charity, which needs to find £12,000 per day to keep its two helicopters ready for life-saving action.
