We Answer The Call

A few weeks ago we were tagged in a post regarding Paul. Paul had been given devastating news in regard to his cancer fight and wanted to complete a few things in a bucket list.

The main one being to fly in a spitfire at Duxford. We didn’t know if we could pull it off but with a bit of hard work and the lovely Imperial War Museum Duxford, today it happened!

The family have just shared these pictures for you to see and hopefully get some official ones too.

We are honored to of made a dream come true as part of our #MakingMemoriesDreamDays campaign
