Do your bit.... A little goes a long way… To help secure the future of this free event we need your support, and we ask again for your generosity. Your kind donations are crucial to keep the airshow flying and also do good things for local charities too. 30% of donations will go to three charities: Children with Cancer Fund, Missing People and You Raise Me Up. The Children with Cancer fund, grants wishes to children who have, or have had cancer. Wishes can be practical, medial or fun and are there to support families too. From a new bike to swimming with dolphins, the money raised today can make a huge difference to their lives. The charity also supports local hospitals and community nurses who assist in the care of children under their remit. Missing People is the only charity in the UK dedicated to bringing missing children and adults back together with their families. The non-profit organisation provides free and confidential 24-hour help 365 days a year, whilst campaigning to improve the emotional, practical and legal support that missing people and their families should receive. Finally, You Raise Me Up is a charity committed to raising funds to support families who have suffered the loss of an adult child between the age of 16 and 25. Counselling support, emotional help and financial aid are just the basis of what the charity is capable of offering to those in need. It relies entirely on donations, to help continue the service. Donation points are located across the event site (see map on page 6 for locations) plus Rotary and EHA Volunteers will be walking the site ready to collect your kind donations. Thank you to Don Perman and Steve Newman who are co-ordinating the bucket collections this year, with Eastbourne, Eastbourne AM, Eastbourne Sovereign and Beachy Head Rotary Clubs, whose members are also providing much needed support. Our thanks also go to Southern Railway for their support in adding Eastbourne Station as a collection point this year. Please give generously to the circulating bucket collections at the event, a little definitely goes a long way. Thank you for your support! £ £ £ Enjoy the show.
