It is with great sadness that we announce that our wonderful patron Joy Lofthouse has passed away. Joy lived life to the full and remained independent and active. Just last year she travelled to London on her own for our Gala Dinner refusing offers of lifts from our team and instead getting the National Express! Joy was an active patron and we were delighted when she agreed to be guest speaker at our 2015 Gala Dinner. She started by saying ‘I don’t know what the fuss is about and why you would want to listen to me’!
In June we were honoured when she joined us on an Air Smiles Day for a local care home here in Gloucestershire. She spent a wonderful day with us, chatting to the Veterans and enjoying a special reunion with her beloved Spitfire.
The fly2help family has lost an inspirational Patron and Joy will remain forever in our hearts.
Fly high Joy
