Lightning Mcqueen fundraising car

The car has been used since 2013 to take part in drives to European locations to raise funds for Wings Appeal.  Destinations have included Barcelona, Lake Como in Italy, Monte Carlo, Venice and Zagreb in Croatia.  Steve Colhoun and co-drivers Scott Fisher and Ian Nuttall have raised over £10000 for Wings Appeal. 

The car was also used in May 2017 and May 2018 as a safety support vehicle during 100 mile cycle rides.  The one day event in 2017 started from RAF Leeming in North Yorkshire and finished at the former RAF Finningley which is now Doncaster Airport.  In 2018 the ride started from RAF Cranwell in Lincolnshire and again finished at the former RAF Finningley in South Yorkshire.  All riders and support crew are RAF veterans who served at RAF Finningley between 1980 and 1996. Steve Colhoun was an MT Driver at Finningley from 1985 to 1987. The events raised around £3000 for Wings Appeal. This provides welfare support to the entire RAF family.  Online donations are welcome at anytime via
