On Saturday 1st August 2015 at precisely 2pm, former RAF pilot, Kevin Whyman, tragically lost his life when his jet plane crashed during a display show at the Carfest charity festival at Oulton Park, Cheshire.
As friends of Kevin Whyman we would like to express our gratitude to all the people who have sent messages of support at this most difficult time.
Kevin’s wife is four months pregnant and Kevin’s daughter is only 18 months old which adds to the tragedy of this terrible situation. Kevin was a wonderful and loving father and would have relished being a dad to two girls.
Many people have contacted us and asked about donations. Some wish to donate towards the welfare of Kevin’s daughter which obviously will include his unborn child as well. In light of this we have opened an account.
Others may wish to donate to a charity that Kevin supported and we have nominated Help For Heroes.
Kevin was very easy going and if there is another charity that you would like to make a donation to in memory of Kevin then that is entirely fitting and appropriate. Perhaps Children In Need as this was the charity Kevin was supporting on the day.
All that is left to say is thank you once more for all the messages of support. Each and every one means so much to all the family and friends of our much loved Kevin.
