VC10 Tribute Shirts READY!

Post by Thumper »

I am pleased to announce that I collected the VC10 Tribute Shirts this afternoon! :D

I am very pleased with the results and I hope you are too. I shall be posting them all out tomorrow morning, UK mail 1-2 days, International up to 5 days.

It started with a box that looked like this;

Work in progress, those 3 weeks work I did at GAP when I was 16 has finally paid off!

Image

I did not have any willing volunteer models so you'll have to put up with me, to protect my identity (and your vision) I dressed up as The Stig :-)////)

And now for an important announcement.

At the start of this project me and Andy stated that any profits made from the shirts would be donated to help preserve XR808 at Bruntingthorpe.

The good news is that this project has raised £236.35p

The bad news is that XR808's future is hanging in the balance at the moment and there is no firm decision over what is happening.

I would therefore like to ask a question to everyone that donated money towards XR808.

A) Would you like the profit held for XR808 until a firm decision is made (which could take months)?
B) Would you like the profit handed over to ZA148 at Newquay (inquiries need to be made first)?
C) Would you like the profit to go to another aircraft's preservation (e.g. XH558) or a charitable trust (e.g. NSPCC)?
D) Would you like the profit returned to you?

I would be grateful if you would take the time to answer the above either on this topic or you can message me via PM or email which will remain confidential.

Once again many thanks for your support and kindness during this project.

Kindest Regards
Helen and Andy :D --+0+--

Helen:

My shirt has just arrived, and you made the right decision on the size swap. As to disposal of the proceeds, if you're happy to hang on, I'd go for 'A' in your list.

Many thanks once again .... and a very nice Beech hedge, by the looks of it!

So pleased you have both received your shirts very quickly, I am hoping the rest (for the UK) will arrive on Monday, it's a shame the Photocall at Brize was so soon but everyone involved did try very hard to get the shirts out ASAP, at least everyone in the UK should have their shirts by Monday for the final flights on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Glad the size is OK Ian and yes it is a rather nice Beech hedge that has produced lots of nuts this year! :D

I will see if I can grab some photos of the available models tomorrow. As I can't wear mine I'll be undercover and no one will recognise me ;)
