raised of £5,000 target by 167 supporters

    Weʼve raised £3,228 to repair the damage caused by thieves on 25th June 2017 at East Midlands Aeropark

    Castle Donington, United Kingdom
    Funded on Wednesday, 25th October 2017

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    On the evening of the 25th June 2017, after a very successful open day, two offenders broke in to the Aeropark and after causing extensive damage to the shop and staff room and breaking the door to the hangar, they then stole a safe out of the shop which had a considerable amount of money inside. All in all they not only stole the takings but caused thousands of pounds in damages which we will have to pay to be replaced.

    As a lot of people know we are a charity and we rely on public funding and donations, which is why we have our open days. They are to raise money to keep the aircraft in the best shape we can. All of the people that work here are volunteers and we have put in an enormous amount of time, money and hard work over the past few months to make your experience with us a better one.

    To say we are gutted and disappointed is putting it mildly. As you can see from the photos we need to replace, doors, windows and parts of the shop, even toys, so we would like to appeal to the public, if you can help in any way by either donating even a small amount or even if you can donate a door or window, anything that needs replacing, we would be extremely grateful!

    Please contact us at and someone will get back to you, furthermore if you have any information on the offenders please can you contact Leicestershire Police on 101 quoting break in at East Midlands Aeropark.

    Thank you for taking the time to read this, hopefully the Police with catch the people that did this heartless act.

      I have just found out about this - almost by accident. I can't put into words the contempt I have for the people that did this. Hope everything is repaired / replaced ASAP
