Bucket collections at this year’s Airbourne raised a whopping £29,732.67.
The collections, which were organised by the Rotary Club of Sovereign Harbour, notched up £3,015 on the Thursday, £6,197 on the Friday, £11,235 on the Saturday and £9,825 on the Sunday. It’s thought the train strikes hampered collections on the opening two days of the air show.
With static collection buckets yet to be counted, it’s thought the total could top the £30,000 mark. Three charities, Missing People, Children With Cancer Fund and You Raise Me Up, are all expected to receive at least £3,000 each.
