Heart Yorkshire successfully launched the first ever Yorkshire pudding into the stratosphere to celebrate Yorkshire Day on 1st August.
The Heart Yorkshire Pudding reached near space meaning a first for Yorkshire, first for Yorkshire puddings and a first for Space. Dixie from the Heart Breakfast show commented “Yorkshire day is a big thing for us here in Yorkshire and we knew we had to do something out of this world to mark it.”
A Heart Yorkshire listener won an on-air competition to send her face into space to represent Yorkshire alongside the pudding. Heart listener, Leanne Kitching from Doncaster said: “It’s so crazy! I was listening to Heart Yorkshire at work and thought it was pretty cool, not something you hear every day and why wouldn’t I want my face in space with a Yorkshire Pudding?” Dan Blaney from SentIntoSpace added: “When we received the call we just couldn’t resist; what better way to celebrate Yorkshire Day by sending the first Yorkshire pudding into space!”
Dixie and Emma host Heart Breakfast weekdays from 6am-10am on Heart Yorkshire.
