Starlight at Popham

Volunteers Needed

On the 7th of August Aerobility has been invited to an event at Popham called the Starlight Escape. Starlight provides once-in-a-lifetime wishes for children suffering from life threatening and life shortening conditions, as well as providing distraction and entertainment in hospices and children’s wards across the country. The events hosts up to 1000 people including children who have had, or are waiting for their wishes, and those from hospices and hospitals and their families. In holding this event, we hope to provide families an escape from their daily routine of hospital appointments, treatment and distress.

 On the day we are planning to have a stand plus an aircraft to show off what we do at Aerobility. We will be particularly focused on gathering a few more applicants for our Aviation Education Programme which will be restarting in September after a brief break. Our role on the day will be to share the story of Aerobility and talk about the great things that the charity do. It should also be a great opportunity to rejuvenate our connections with a younger generation of aspiring aviators.

The event will take place from 1200 – 1600 at Popham Airfield, Coxford Down, Winchester SO21 3BD

Please contact if you are able to help on the day.
