Spitfire experience

Hello! As you may or may not know Ben’s 40th is approaching in a few weeks (March 16). For as long as I’ve known Ben (18 years) he has loved everything to do with spitfires and would ultimately love to get in one; but flying in one would blow his mind. He thinks it would never be a possibility as it is such an expensive experience. I have raised some but still have a way to go. I can’t imagine the look on his face if we managed to raise the money to give him something he’s always dreamed of- it would be amazing! He would cringe if he knew I was asking people to help me raise the money, that’s why it’s a surprise; but ultimately I know he’d be so chuffed to know his friends and family helped to pay for something that means so much to him and always thought was never a possibility. I simply can’t think of a better present to celebrate such a brilliant man. Any donation whatsoever would be very gratefully received. I’m so sorry to ask, but I can’t do it on my own. If you know anyone else who might like to donate and who I might not know, I’d be extremely grateful if you would pass on this link/forward the email. Hopefully we can make Ben the next Geoffrey Wellum. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Bel xxx
