Last few days of XH558 as we know her?

Dear All,

As of today Saturday 28th February at 12noon, the Pledge fund to save XH558 for this season stands at over £455,000

This is still some £395,000 short of a figure we need in order for financial forecasts to balance and for work to begin on preparation for a complete Airshow season in 2009.

The trust that owns her could close by Friday 6th March. Only the Pledge campaign can save her now.

The Vulcan to the Sky Club have been very succesful in raising the profile of the campaign, with contributions rising rapidly in the last few days. The recent 24 hour Vulcan Scramble around all 15 Vulcan airframes in the U.K. resulted in £56,000 being added to the fund in a single day!

With just 5 days to go, you can play your part in securing this NATIONAL HERITAGE ASSET.
We ask you to consider a Pledge of money to be called up only if we reach a level of funding that enables us to realise our aims.

More details are available here: http://www.vulcantothesky.com or by calling 0116 247 8145

Whatever you can afford, be it a few pounds or even a few more pounds spread over 12 months by standing order - it will be much appreciated and could just possibly save this ICONIC British aircraft for the Nation.

Newsletters will be arriving shortly to over 30,000 of our Members and Friends to advise just how close the project is to closure and to explain the Pledge Fund.

With your help in sufficient numbers, the collapse of this groundbreaking project need not happen.
Please consider if you can help us further in any way.

With many thanks,
The Vulcan To The Sky Club
