Deputy Lord Mayor, Alliance Councillor Peter McReynolds, together with Air Marshal Sean Reynolds and Wing Commander Noel Williams RAF (Retd), launched the 2019 Battle of Britain Wings Appeal at Belfast City Hall, with service personnel and veterans in attendance.
Cllr McReynolds said, “I was pleased and delighted to be able to launch the RAF Associations’ 2019 Battle of Britain Wings Appeal Campaign in Northern Ireland.
“Last year, the team of Wings Appeal Organisers collectively raised almost £100,000 in what was the 100th anniversary of the RAF, and will be trying just as hard this year.
“Each year, the wider Association responds to over 25,000 calls for help and the number is steadily rising as those who are eligible become older. I wish them every success with the appeal and encourage everyone to contribute what they can.”
