Mesage from Group Captain Catherine Wallis (RAAF)

As you may know, in April 2018 the UK will officially open the International Bomber Command Centre. It is a fantastic centre, with memorial walls, peace gardens, a world class interactive museum and an education centre. It will ensure these important stories are not lost.

We have about 10 Bomber Command Veterans (all 93yrs plus) who are able to travel and who would love to see the new centre and attend the opening. Unfortunately we have been unable to obtain government funding for this.

So I have set up a GoFundMe campaign to get them there:

https://www.gofundme.com/4j0syu8?pc=em_db_co2876_v1&rcid=613c21fb1e934e86becb34645709196c

I think we owe these wonderful veterans a last opportunity to see their legacy. What I ask is that you would consider sharing this campaign widely, especially amongst your Facebook, Instagram and other groups, so that we have a chance to meet our target. All monies raised will be administered by the Bomber Command Association and shared equally among those veterans able to travel.

Your support would mean a lot to me. Thank you so much!

Catherine Wallis
