Fly UK…raising money for children with cancer

FLY-UK 2014

Its all go in our house this week with my partner Mark busy planning for the annual Fly-UK Round Britain charity event which starts on the 19th June.  Every year since 2004, a group of microlight pilots has set off to fly around Britain, taking in Land’s End and John O’Groats as a minimum.  Over the years, more and more aircraft have joined the Rally, and more corners of the British Isles have been visited including The Scilly Isles, the West Coast of Ireland, The Outer Hebrides, and even Unst – the northernmost of the Shetland Islands.  The efforts of these intrepid pilots has so far raised over £28,000 for CHILDREN WITH CANCER UK and I know that Mark feels very privileged to be one of them.  Last year Mark’s Gyro was the only one in the event but this year he is hoping there will be a second Gyro taking to the sky’s.

The entire cost of the trip i.e. aircraft fuel, landing fees, food, admin etc is all funded by the participants so the charity benefit from the full amount of donations received.  If anyone is reading this post and would like to donate, no matter how large or small an amount, it couldn’t be easier.  Simply go to the official fund raising site at or click here.
