Every pound, hour or flight donated to fly2help goes towards changing people lives, through the excitement of flight.

You can make a donation at any time, either a single gift or by setting up a regular monthly donation.  All donations, large and small, mean we can get on with our charitable programme, safe in the knowledge that it is funded.

You might like to join in one of the fundraising events we organise, or create your own event, whether that is an ambitious 300-mile cycle challenge, running a local 10k or choosing fly2help as your charity for a pub quiz, aviation-themed talk or golf tournament.  If we can help, we’d love to.

Fundraising for fly2help

Fly, cycle, run, dance, bake, sing!  Whatever you, your friends, your school, your club mates or colleagues like doing, can usually be turned into a fundraising event to help fly2help run more Air Smiles Days and Aim High scholarships.

Follow us social media if you’d like to take part in fundraising events that we organise, or contact us if we can help you run your own.

William Sharp Memorial Fund

Memory funds

Two Aim High scholarship weeks are sponsored in memory of William Sharp and Tom Close, who died at tragically early ages, but whose passion for flying is being shared with the next generation.

Setting up a memory fund is a moving way to remember your loved one through something they were passionate about.  Often begun as donations at the funeral or memorial service, family, friends, colleagues and club members can contribute to an online fund, by giving a donation or through raising money with fundraising activities.  fly2help would be pleased to discuss how you would like the fund to be set up and used.

Leaving a gift in your will

Your Will provides for those you wish to take care of when you die, but it can also be a final gift to a cause that matters very much to you now.  Your family solicitor or a will-writing advisor will be able to help you decide on the correct form of words.

Volunteer Your Time

Volunteer your time

Our volunteers are a very important part of the fly2help team, giving a few hours, a day or several days to help us. Many have connections at airfields around the country, others love everything to do with flying and some want to gain new skills or friendships.

On Air Smiles Days, volunteers fly planes, lead teams, look after families and school groups, take photographs, drive classic cars and make cakes. Teams of four represent fly2help at airshows, setting up our stand, talking to visitors, selling merchandise and raffle tickets. During Aim High scholarship weeks and taster days, volunteers give talks to young people about their own careers in aviation and others host students at the airfield and on visits.


Spread The Word

Spread the word

The first way to do this is simple. Please follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and share our news on your social media. Let people know what you do and what you love.

Another way is to help us spread the fly2help message into your local community and networks. You might enjoy talking to groups like the Masons, WI, Air Cadets, Scouts and your local flying school or running club. Please talk about us in your day to day life with whoever you may meet. You never know what aviation enthusiasts or
fundraising opportunities you might uncover!
