With the chance to win the experience of being on board Vulcan XL426 during a taxi-run at London Southend Airport In 2020, our Legends of the Air Prize Draw saw the largest number of tickets sold by the Trust for its annual prize draw in many years.
There was a very real sense of expectation at Hawkwell Village Hall on 30 November as our guest speaker at our Christmas Event & Buffet, Squadron Leader Joe Marsden, drew the winning tickets.
None of the lucky winners were in the hall itself, but all were thrilled when our Prize Draw Promoter, Graham Cash, contacted them to deliver the good news, especially Sheila Kirby-Morris of Thorpe Bay, who will only have to travel the short distance to London Southend Airport for her ride of a lifetime.
The Trust would like to thank everyone who supported us by buying tickets and to the volunteers who helped sell tickets at our events during 2019.
Special thanks are also due to the Duxford Aviation Society for donating the VIP Visit to Concorde.
