The building has started
We have been proud supporters and fundraisers for the Battle of Britain Memorial Trust since 1992. We have raised large sums of money through signing events and auctions over the years. On the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Britain with your help we raised a staggering amount of over £30,000.
In this year Colin was honoured to be nominated to become a Trustee of the trust, the fundraising this year with the trust and the Battle of Britain Fighter Association is going well.
On the 27th October 2011 we were privileged to be helping at the Charity Gala Dinner and Auction held at the RAF Club in aid of ‘The Wing’ appeal on behalf of The Battle of Britain Memorial Trust. The event was held in the presence of HRH Prince Michael of Kent.
On the 18th October 2012 we held another Charity Gala Dinner and Auction, this time raising the amazing amount of £40,000.
At the gala dinner in October 2013, we raised over £30,000.
This is raising funds for the eagerly anticipated ‘The Wing’ education centre at Capel Le Ferne, if you are interested in this project please go to this website for further details www.battleofbritainmemorial.org/the-memorial
'The Wing' Education Centre has been granted full planning permission with building commencing August 2013.
By the Christmas break this year, all the stabilising & concrete base will be finished ready for steel construction in January 2013.
At signing events held at the Duxford airshows, we have raised over £4,000 which goes directly to
Just to let everybody know, the money raised at the September signing event at Duxford, is paying for a tree to be planted at the National Memorial Arboretum which honours the fallen. This will be planted in the spring of next year. Thank you once again for all your support.
