A group of 30 cabin crew from all fleets are walking from Carlisle airport to Newcastle airport in aid of Flying Start.  To date they have raised over £5,000!

This is a fantastic initiative by cabin crew and it’s the first time we have seen collaborative fund-raising on the ground amongst the crew community, demonstrating their support for Flying Start both in the air and on the ground.

The walk, which started on Tuesday August 13th, will finish on Thursday August 16th  in Newcastle.

You can help support our global charity partnership with Comic Relief UK by going to the Flying Start microsite.

With Comic Relief support, Street League is running a structured sport and education programme for 16-25 year olds across the UK who are not in education, employment or training. The programme helps young people to build their confidence, improve their health, extend their social networks and develop the skills they need to succeed in today’s demanding job market. By encouraging participants to work towards future goals, the programme also reduces their involvement in gangs, drugs and crime.
