Red Arrows donate over £90k to charity this year

The biggest donation gifted was £12,000

The Red Arrows Trust has shown that its service to the country continues on the ground as well as in the air.

The trust gains an income from royalties associated with sales of approved Red Arrows memorabilia and then distributes it to worthy causes twice a year.

The trust has donated thousands of pounds to a list of charities in the last year, adding up to a total of £91,000.

The biggest donation, of £12,000, was made to Flying Scholarships for the Disabled in January this year.

Other charities gifted included Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance, who received a donation of £3,000 in January.
