On the 2nd and 3rd of July 2011, Marston Airfield held a flying weekend. There was lots of different aircraft on site to see, planes, microlights, balloons, hang gliders, paramotors and even some hovercraft. On Saturday night there was a BBQ and light music. Many visitors were camping (thank goodness the weather was good) and some flew in to visit! They raised a fantastic total of £646.53. Thanks to Clive and Alan for organising this and for continuing to support the trust.

Kev completed the 3 Peaks climb on 20th May 2011 together with 3 others. He went up Ben Nevis, Scaffell Pike and Snowden - all in 24 hrs! It wasn't easy and Kev's pain was being felt by all who were following him on Facebook, but he did really well and completed it as planned. He raised a wonderful £510. Thanks Kev - don't think we will be joining the next challenge, they seem to be getting more difficult!

Various members of Andi's family and friends completed either the 16 or the 26 mile Waendel Cycle on Saturday 14th May 2011. They raised the grand total of £1489.20. Several of the group completed the course by not putting their feet on the ground from start to finish and others walked up the hills and rode down! Every one of them had a fantastic time and felt a huge sense of achievement. Thanks to Dot too for combining the congratulation bbq with her birthday party. Well done everyone!!
