Good friend to Aerobility, Michael Trotter will soon be undertaking a sponsored run to raise funds to preserve the Avro Vulcan XH558.
Michael has supported us in many ways over the years, for example, the provision our top raffle prize at last years Blackbushe Air Day - a VIP tour of the Vulcan with overnight accommodation!
If like us, the Vulcan has a special place in your heart, please consider supporting this worthy cause. You can find Michael's sponsorship page here.
In Michael's words, here are the details of the event...
Avro Vulcan XH558 is too important a national heritage asset for the project to fail now. The XH558 Survival Plan Appeal has been designed to put interim funding in place to ensure the safekeeping of the aircraft and enable the survival of the Trust until a new and secure home for XH558 can be built with full public access.
This sponsored run of 5.58km reflecting her tail number is my small personal contribution; I am hoping it will help to drive the appeal to its target and even beyond. With the kind permission of Doncaster Sheffield Airport (the old RAF Finningley), I will be running on Wednesday 22nd March actually on the airfield.
The carefully-measured 5.58km course will take me along the runway to finish back at Hangar 1 where XH558 is safely stored. Any funds above and beyond the target will of course all be used to brighten XH558's future. I hope you will sponsor me and spread the word to your friends and colleagues - thank you in advance for all your support.
