News on the charity we will be supporting.
It is "Fix Crumlin", this is of course "Our Lady's hospital for sick Children" in Crumlin.
In particular the money will go towards the St John’s Cancer Ward Renovation and also towards the New Critical Cardiac Care Unit.
A lot of money has already been raised for this, and its looking good that it will be completed during 2013.
Full details will be posted on our website. http://www.finnvalleyflyingclub.com.
Details about "Fix Crumlin" can be found at http://www.cmrf.org
We have a full programme of events for the day, Gerry has kindly agreed to come along with the RV and we have quite a lot of UK crews coming across (weather permitting)
Hope to see you all there.

All systems go for tomorrow.
Large crowd expected and the "Hooley in the hangar" expecting big numbers.
Get along for a fantastic day.

We had a great event,
thanks to Gerry Humphreys, the IAA and to every single person who helped out on the day. Thanks to everyone to contributing to the charity which was "our Ladys hospital for sick children Crumlin".
We raised a bit over €2500 for them.
