Vulcan to the Sky Charity Dinner 15/10/2010 CANCELLED
« on: October 05, 2010, 10:28:08 PM »
Hi folks this is my first post so please be gentle with me!

I would like to offer my thanks to Sue Williamson and her team at The Concorde Conference Centre in Altrincham Manchester, who have been trying to organise a fundraising evening on the 15th October 2010 (as advertised in the last Vulcan club magazine page 32).

I have no connection with this event, other than being a pain for in the neck for Sue as I have tried to obtain tickets to attend.

Unfortunately due to the problems that they have encountered in organising the event tickets are only now becoming available, but a minimum of 200 must be requested before the evening can go ahead, so as with all our other fundraising efforts for XH558 it's fingers crossed.

If you would like to contribute to "Our Vulcan" in this way, please as advertised contact Sue Williamson on 07773087152 for details or to book.

As I have stated I have no connection with this event, I just want to be able to have a meal along with other XH558 supporters, sat under a Concorde and as advertised listen to presentations from Martin Withers DFC and the engineers from the Vulcan to the Sky Trust.

Could we ask for any more? YES! all proceeds go to the Vulcan Fund.    Best wishes Dave.

Ta mate.
I don't think we're going to get any engineers at the moment.

I'm having a chat with Sue soon. We had promises of 150 but delays in getting details sorted will have cost a few.

PS The biggest problem will be minimum numbers for caterers who are doing us an awesome deal. The Concorde guys are providing hangar free along with tables etc.

I suspect it'll be early next week when we need to finalise numbers for food.

If you didn't get through I'll make sure she has you on the list when I see her tomorrow.

John, are we struggling for numbers? My head office is in Manchester - dunno if anyone up there would be interested but I can put out a begging letter to all Manchester users if that would help...

How about seeing if we can get an article on the home page about it?  That would be read by many 1000s of people.
