Memorable year

I WOULD like to say a big thank you to everyone who attended Little Gransden Airfield on Sunday, August 26, and to local companies that supported us in some way this year at our Children In Need charity day. It looks like we will be handing a cheque over

I WOULD like to say a big thank you to everyone who attended Little Gransden Airfield on Sunday, August 26, and to local companies that supported us in some way this year at our Children In Need charity day.

It looks like we will be handing a cheque over in November to the BBC Children in Need Appeal for about £17,000.

I would still like to think that some company would be interested in sponsoring or part-sponsoring the event so that we could donate even more money.

To me, this year is a very special one to me and my family. I am off to Buckingham Palace with my dear wife and father in December to be awarded the MBE from The Queen's Birthday Honours, and to have raised the most money ever on after 15 years of organising the event and participation from the Royal Canadian Air Force with an aircraft which we believe has not been displayed at an air show before in the UK, has made it a year I will not ­forget.
