This month we granted our very first memorial Wish for Keith. He was due to have his Spitfire Flight Wish in April but due to covid it was cancelled. We had hoped to just reschedule it for him in July sometime. Sadly Keith list his brave battle at the beginning of July so never got up in the sky to complete his Wish. Keith worked hard in the last months of his life to fundraise for us which was incredible given that he was so poorly himself. He wanted to help someone else with a Wish as he was so excited about his own Wish.
We worked very closely on this memorial Wish with his Son to have something permanent in his memory at this very special site.
When people get ready for their flights they’ll be able to sit on Keith’s bench and he will be remembered.
For this Wish we’d like to say a huge thank you to Tim & the Team at www.boultbeeflightacademy.co.uk for all their help & getting us special permission from the RAF to allow us to grant to do.
A big thank you to Tony from www.tonyhackettphotography.co.uk for capturing this moment for Keith’s loved ones. We know seeing his bench near a Spitfire has given them comfort.
This bench & plaque was purchased locally from www.engravedbench.co.uk
Keith will be missed by many people but we hope he will be remembered often near his beloved Spitfires xx
