Chair Philip Fearn and members presenting cheque to KSSAAT
Medway Model Flying Club have raised £2121 for the KSSAAT (Kent Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance Trust) in 2017. A fantastic achievement! Medway MFC have been flying Radio controlled model aircraft near Iwade for over 40 years now and have supported the Air Ambulance since 2004 and hope to be able to continue supporting them for many years to come. With little finance from government they need help and support from the public.
