Local aviation charity, fly2help, welcomed some very special visitors to their base at Gloucestershire Airport on Wednesday. At the beginning of 2019, fly2help was chosen by the RAF Typhoon Display Team to be one of their charities of the year and over the course of the year the team have been busy fundraising for the charity whilst using their world renowned presence at Airshows to spread the word about fly2helps’ Air Smiles Days and Aim High Educational Programme.
The Typhoon Team descended upon Gloucestershire Airport this week to formally present their donation, an incredible £5,291.00. The donation was received by fly2help Patron, Air Marshal Sir Dusty Miller, KBE and Sgt Liam O’Keefe, 29 Squadron Typhoon Display Manager said …
“we learned how vital your charity is to show children that with a little direction, will-power and a bucket load of determination anything can be achieved… and it is extremely exciting to know they are getting a solid foundation of support from fly2help”
This donation will be used by fly2help across its charitable programmes, to provide Air Smiles Days to local families in need of support as they face difficult challenges, and to support fly2help’s Aim High Education programme which opens the door on the world of aviation to youngsters through a career advice and guidance programme.
