Another brilliant year at the East Kirkby Air Show

Our Regional Fundraiser Gemma Mahon organised this year's annual East Kirkby Air Show which was held on 3 August. In her blog she tells us how the day went.

For the 5th year running we held the East Kirkby Air Show at the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre. This year was very exciting as we had air displays from the Vulcan and Blades. 

Vulcan aircraftThe event attracted a crowd of over 4,000 and we received wonderful comments from the public throughout the day.

We also had a special appearance from Ben Elephant who collected valuable donations from people who attended. 

Our fundraising marquee boasted a full stock of mugs, Red Arrows flying suits and unique aircraft photographs (donated by FS Graham Spark, our champion at RAF Marham), all of which were extremely popular.

We are very grateful to everyone who helped make the day such a huge success and we looking forward to another exciting air show next year!
