Earlier this year we broke the news that Bankstone would be participating in Yellow Yorkshire, a colour-themed regional charity fundraising effort in aid of as-seen-on-TV helicopter ambulance service YAA. See full details here.

Well, a couple of weeks ago (on July 7), they only went and did exactly that. More memorable readers may recall that we promised back in April to bring you exclusive after-the-event images of Bankstone managing director Ditzy Typo knocking out a bravura solo interpretation of the ever-popular, if slightly depressing, Yellow by top beat combo Combplay on his sousaphone while dressed as a banana.

Sadly, during the course of a gala fundraising evening that saw the UK’s best loved professional outsourced motor insurance claims handling provider raise more than £199.99 for the life saving air ambulance service, some unidentified music lover took it upon themselves to hide Mr Typo’s instrument.

Notwithstanding this disappointment, the event was adjudged a huge success (by Mr T, shortly after he’d been cut out of a somewhat snug banana suit, which had proved significantly harder to get off than it had been to put on).

“This event has been a huge success,” a slightly flushed and flustered Typo adjudged. “I couldn’t be prouder of my team who’ve given freely of their time and money to support this exceptionally worthwhile cause. I know you all greatly appreciated the opportunity I recently allowed you to see the YAA at work [an allusion to a staff outing to the charity’s operation at Nosetowel Priory near Wakefield], but just don’t expect anymore staff jollies like that for a while.”

“Now get back to work,” he added emphatically.
