The branch has been very active in raising money for the Wings Appeal.
Each year between 2001 and 2007 we raised well over £10,000. The record was in 2006 with £14,000.
We have now contributed a cumulative total of £168,383 since Branch foundation in 1995.
A Dinner to celebrate the achievement of £100,000 was held on Friday 26 October 2007 and another to celebrate our £150,000 achievement was held on Friday 10 October 2014. See Wings Appeals Celebration Dinner
Sylvia Bonner’s extraordinary efforts in past years by placing boxes of aircraft pin badges in pubs, clubs and offices raised donations totalling £10,437.
