Supporting our local Charities

Each iFLY tunnel has selected a local charity who they have chosen to support and help raise funds for. 

Milton Keynes: The Rae Rae Trust

The Rae Rae Trust supports children and their families who are affected by cancer. They organise trips out and activities that encourage the whole family to come together and spend time with each other, giving much-needed respite from everything else that's going on in their lives.

Supporting our National Charity: Blesma               

iFLY is proud to have appointed Blesma as our national charity partner, working together in our mission of inclusivity to bring the dream of flight to everyone, of any age or ability.

Blesma, The Limbless Veterans is one of only around ten charities that exist today from the 18,000 that were born out of WWI.

Following this global conflict, 40,000 British Service men had returned home having suffered life-changing injuries. To help each other when there was no support from the state or Defence Medical Services, these men came together as local groups to share knowledge, support each other and lobby the Government for better employment opportunities for the war disabled when no one else would. They became ‘Limbless Ex-Servicemen’s Associations’, and soon started to spread across the UK, becoming a national charity in 1932.

To this day, Blesma continues to work tirelessly to provide practical, emotional and financial support to injured veterans and their families as they rebuild their lives.

Blesma supports their Members for life; just as they are still caring for our surviving World War II veterans, Blesma has adapted to the times including looking after, and looking out for, a new generation of amputees from the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts who will need specialised support as they face the long journey ahead.

Blesma may not look the same as it did in the 1930s –but the ethos and objectives remain the same: to assist those living with limb loss or injury to live independent and fulfilling lives.

Blesma aims to ensure that all serving or ex-service men and women who have lost sight, limbs or the use of limbs can lead independent and fulfilling lives and will not be failed, forgotten or left behind. 

iFLY works with Blesma to support their fundraising, national events, and members.
