Donations page now live!


We are proud to announce that the Southend Airshow & Military Festival have partnered with BmyCharity and Help for Heroes to launch the official Southend Airshow & Military Festival donations page.

Bmycharity, which is owned by Help for Heroes has been providing an online fundraising service for charities for over 12 years making Southend Airshow & Military Festival the first ever Community Interest Company to be featured on the site. Donations made to the page will go towards the current 2014 event funding goal of £70,000.

There is just nine weeks to hit our target, we have raised an amazing £150,000 so far and are so close to achieving our goal, but we need to raise a further £70,000 or there will be no Airshow in 2014.

If we fail to meet the targets, the funds raised through donations will be allocated to our five chosen charities: Vulcan Restoration Trust, Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Families Association (SSFA), The Royal British Legion, RAF Benevolent Fund and Help for Heroes

We care deeply about Southend. Southend Airshow was a hallmark event for the town, it truly put Southend on the map and with your help it can do once again.

Thank you,

John & Tom
