Nominated names will be added to the Aircraft Restoration Company’s blue photo-reconnaissance Spitfire as a way of recognising small acts of kindness throughout the Covid-19 pandemic and supporting NHS Charities Together.
From a family member to a kind neighbour, close friend or community hero, the public can now thank them with this special gesture.
In return for a donation, the nominated name will be one of those written on the Spitfire, which has an 80,000-name capacity.
As the names are added, the UK will be able to watch the extraordinary visual spectacle unfold.
To submit a name, the public simply needs to donate a minimum of £10 to the JustGiving page.
Members of the public will then need to state their loved one’s name and a reason for nomination in the donation comment.
The aim is to lift the spirits of those across the UK, many of whom are still living in some form of isolation, whilst also thanking the hospitals, communities and individuals who have been at the forefront of getting the country through the pandemic.
Falkirk district residents can see the aircraft in action when it flies over Forth Valley Royal Hospital in Larbert at 2.03pm tomorrow (Thursday, September 17).
The public will be able to view progress updates and carefully planned flight routes via the Aircraft Restoration Company Instagram, Facebook and website.
