Funny you mention that Bob I was wondering if asking people to donate the equivalent of the price of pint a week or a packet of ciggies would be a good thing or not last night.

Congratulations on giving up !! [insert clappy hand smiley]

We have had a thread running on the MotorhomeFacts website forum for the last couple of days and loads of members there have donated to '558.
I thought you might all like the post that I have copied below:-

You know, i'm no petrol head, no aircraft enthusiast or anything that doesn't see most mechanical items including cars as merely a tool with a purpose....

But ......what is it about that plane and the noise it makes that stirs me inside. I haven't got a clue. That made me donate £20 and then decide when the form comes through to set up a direct debit. This is mental !!!! Somebody call the Vulcan Doctor !!!!

It's sounds a bit Tardis, a bit Darth Vader, a bit sinister, yet to look at it's as beautiful as The Spitfire and Concorde and an Autotrail Cheyenne 635.


Says it all I think...........................we know how he feels.

Landyman.

That is, quite literally, the 'Vulcan Effect'.

Just returned from nephews 7th birthday party, wearing my Vulcan tee shirt in honour of tonights good news. I gave my nephew an inflatable Vulcan as a present and it led to some interesting discussions with other guests. Several remember seeing Vulcans flying years ago and they all had good memories of them. Now have several more email addresses to send appeals to, and one promise of a donation tonight.
