ALL PROCEEDS FROM THE SALE OF THIS SCREENSAVER GO TO THE LPG QRA SHED APPEAL
RAF Wattisham Q-SHED - Rebuild complete but funds still needed!
The re-erection of the RAF Wattisham QRA Shed is 100% complete thanks to the generosity of our supporters. All our donor's names are recorded on our Contributors Board in the hangar.
However the building still has to be fitted out with storyboards telling the Cold War and Lightning histories. Added to this we have ongoing challenge to keep both Lightnings in fully functional condition.
We have therefore decided to invite existing contributors to top up their donation at any time and at the same time invite new donors to the scheme whereby we will commission an new name, to be permanently displayed in the hangar, for a minimum of a £50 donation. You will be in good company as the likes of Wg Cdr Roland "Bee" Beamont are recorded. The specified name can be of your choice and we have a number of names "In memory of" which is a fitting way to remember a loved one or colleague.
If you have the time, then please attend one of the Open Days. If you wish to make a donation, any amount, large or small is most welcome. If you wish to pay by cheque please make payment to "LPG" and send to:
Richard Norris, 2 Spring Hill, Little Staughton, Beds, MK44 2BS (tel: 01234 378827). An SAE would be appreciated.

THEY PROTECTED YOU NOW YOU PROTECT THEM!
While some people think you need to be a prominent or wealthy member of a community, such as a successful Columbus criminal defense attorney, to start a charity that couldn't be further from the truth. Anyone with a passion to save or rebuild a historic building can launch a fundraising campaign and make a difference in their local community.
