The Starlight Childrens Foundation’s biggest event of the year will be held at Popham Airfield, near Basingstoke, Hampshire, SO21 3BD on Wednesday 12th August.

Many volunteers come along to entertain critically and terminally ill children and some bring their aircraft, helicopters, classic and sports cars, buses, fire engines and the like to give rides.

For over ten years, the Southern branch, together with other members of the HCGB, has supported this charity by giving rides in their hovercraft.

The Southern Branch is now inviting anyone to join us who would like to give rides to these children or to just come along to assist those that can. Many children are expected and we want to ensure that there are enough of us to give them all a great time. We well know what a rewarding and inspiring day it can be to meet these young people and it makes a real difference, not only to them but also their families.

Would you like to help?
Please contact us on 01425 610775 or 07711 560347 or email

Should you wish to stay overnight onsite, this is possible.

Many thanks
Bob Beech
