Trustees March for Museum!
Published on: 10th March 2017
Two Trustees from the RAF Museum are set to walk a marathon a day for five days in order to raise funds for the Museum’s RAF Centenary Programme.
Alan Coppin and Robin Southwell, both Trustees of the RAF Museum will walk between the Museum’s two public sites; from Cosford in the West Midlands to Colindale in North West London and aim to raise £100K along the way.
The money raised from the 130 mile walk will go towards the RAF Museum’s £26m RAF Centenary Programme.
2018 marks the Centenary of the Royal Air Force and the award-winning RAF Museum will celebrate and commemorate this anniversary through a major transformation of our visitor experience sharing the RAF story on site and online.
A multi-million-pound transformation of the RAF Museum’s London home will welcome visitors to discover a new green heart of the community in Colindale, reflecting the historic RAF Hendon airfield.
New, innovative galleries will explore the first 100 years of the RAF, its roles today and invite visitors to imagine its future contribution and technology.
A new digital sharing project will promote a conversation with a global audience and help connect people to the RAF story.
Says Robin Southwell: “It’s an important time for the Museum and we are all excited at the opportunities that lie ahead. Our aim is to raise awareness and funds for the Museum’s RAF Centenary Programme and we are grateful for the support from the Royal Air Force.”
The walk will begin at RAF Museum Cosford at 9.00 hrs on Friday 8 May.
Stopovers will include:
The first night, Friday 8 May in Solihull
The second night, Saturday 9 May in Leamington Spa
The third night, Sunday 10 May at RAF Halton
The fourth night, Monday 11 May at RAF High Wycombe
The fifth night, arrive at RAF Museum London
