EIMS Clients & Associates Pay Tribute to Former 'Red 4' Pilot
Earlier this year EIMS hosted an event to celebrate the launch of the new EIMS Head Quarters. The roof top terrace, allowed clients and partners the privilege of a fantastic view of the Bournemouth Air Festival, accompanied by great food and exclusive networking.
On 20th August 2011 Flt Lt Jon Egging tragically lost his life whilst completing a display at the Bournemouth Air Festival. He was coming to the end of his first year with the world-famous Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, The Red Arrows, flying in the position of Red 4.
Jon was passionate about inspiring young people through a love of flying and enthusiasm for teamwork. The Jon Egging Trust has been set up to realise his dream by Jon’s wife Emma, his mother Dawn Egging, childhood friend James Godley and Red Arrows pilot Ben Plank.
In honor of Jon, and because EIMS felt he should be remembered as we continue to enjoy the fantastic spectacle of the Bournemouth Air Festival year on year, EIMS offered clients an opportunity to donate to the Jon Egging Trust
The Jon Egging Trust works with Blue Skies; an innovative youth engagement programme which helps young people, who are facing challenges in their lives, realize their full potential.
Fundraising Manager at the trust, Rachael Hewitt comments: “What a fantastic gesture, I can assure you the funds raised will go a long way to supporting young people on our Blue Skies programmes. These will continue in your area next year and we hope to reach out to many more young people in the future.”
