The Trust have been working extremely hard for months now on a major project to be held down at the Oval in early May. We will be announcing the full details later this week, but such is the scale of the event we are struggling to source all the funding needed to give the occasion the recognition it deserves, and put it over properly.
We still have a few irons in the fire, but time is fast approaching, and we are determined not to lessen the impact of the event due to a lack of funds.
One element of the event involves the display of a full size replica Spitfire in the Oval car park! The Spitfire belongs to the Ulster Aviation Society, and we have managed to talk them into very kindly letting us borrow it for the day!
As with all these things though there is a cost involved, including transport to and from the Aircrafts’ Hanger up at the Maze. We wouldn’t want to lose the Spitfire, so given the timescale, we have decided to offer a company or individual a very unique opportunity indeed to get practically involved.
For £500, we will put together a package, including private access and photo opportunities (inside the cockpit!), together with event advertising, and of course the individual/company will have the satisfaction of being associated with such an iconic aircraft and the whole event.
If anyone knows of a company or individual who may be interested, please let us know by return email (firstname.lastname@example.org), or by contacting someone on the GCT Board directly. We will then be happy to discuss the full programme of the event in detail, and come up with a package to suit all parties.
Many thanks once again for all your support.
