Former Museum Trustee Pulls Out of Charity Walk

Published on: 4 June 2019

We regret to announce that while training for the RAF Museum 101Walk, former Trustee of the Museum, Alan Coppin suffered an injury and has been advised after an examination by his podiatrist to rest over the next few days.

This is particularly disappointing for Alan as he was relishing the challenge, having successfully completed a 130 mile charity walk for the Museum in 2017. This walk in 2017 raised substantial funds for the redevelopment of the Museum’s London site, as part of its commemorations for the RAF’s Centenary in 2018.

The aim of the 101 Walk is to raise funds for new children’s facilities at the Museum’s Cosford site. The Museum would like to wish him a speedy recovery and thank him for his continued efforts on our behalf. It is hoped that Alan will be able to join the other participants of the 101 Walk, including Museum Trustee Nick Sanders, for part of the walk’s final leg on 9 June.

Learn more about the 101 Walk and how you can support Nick and the team in their efforts here.
