My story

[p]FLY-UK is an adventure for microlight pilots who attempt to fly their small aircraft to both Land's End and John O'Groats during the course of one week. We start in the Midlands on Friday 21st June this year and visit the southwest first. Then via Wales and the Northwest we fly to Scotland and the Outer Hebrides, and on to the far north. The return flights take us sothwards mainly following the east coast before finishing at a special event. All in a tour of 8 days of flying. [/p][p]We are pleased to be able to support Children with Cancer once again. This is the 16th year of our collecting for the charity and we hope to be able to provide another useful sum towards their work. Every day 12 families in the UK receive the devastating news that their child has cancer. Through funding vital specialist research, Children with Cancer UK has done everything in its power to give these children the best chance to survive. [/p][p]Our support helps Children with Cancer UK to fund over 60 research projects across the UK accelerating breakthroughs to help drive up childhood cancer survival rates and find kinder, more effective treatments to reduce long-term side effects. This ground breaking research saves children's lives and would otherwise go unfunded. [/p][p]Knowing treatment can be especially challenging for family life, Children with Cancer UK also helps fund patient family accommodation near hospitals so families can stay together during their children's treatment. They also organise unforgettable days out for children and their families to create memories that will never be lost. [/p][p]But they still have so much more to do. A single child dying from cancer is one too many. With your support, we are helping them to create a future in which every child with cancer survives and experiences the life changing moment when they ring the end of treatment bell.[/p][p]Thank you for helping to save the lives of children with cancer and keep families together.[/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor FLY-UK and donations will be quickly processed and passed to Children with Cancer UK. [/p][p]Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this.[/p][p]The FLY-UK pilots really appreciate all your support and thank you for your donation.[/p]
