Hi, Since about the age of 6 I've looked up to the sky to watch the planes go by and always wondered what it would be like to fly one of those 'big bird like' machines. 15 years later and my love and passion of aviation has grown from that 'wonder' to a need to fly. Virgin Atlantic has recently opened a future flyers programme which requires a security bond of '£109,000' to pay for it, I can get funding for £89,000 of it with a secured loan on my house however I do not have the funds to pay for the extra £20,000 pounds and when you have come so close, but are still so far away because nothing can happen without that £20,000 it really hurts. If you can give just £10 then you will be giving me a step up an inch closer to the dream I have always had, and I hope with all your help that inch by inch I will be able to get to where I need to be in as short a time period possible. So please if you are thinking of donating please do and if you have any other questions of where your money will be going or anything about me in general please get in contact with me at [email protected] and I would be very happy to talk to you to answer anything you have to ask. Thank you all very much in advance, Tom Lomas.
