How you can help


‘A nation that forgets its past has no future’ – Winston Churchill

The ‘Spitfire Fund’ launched in 1940’s war time Britain, inspired thousands of people, schools, businesses and clubs to raise the funds that created over 2,500 Spitfires for the war effort.

The National Spitfire Project are calling on the national and indeed international community to once again come together and collectively raise the remaining £3m needed to build the ultimate tribute to this iconic aircraft.

HM's Government will generously match fund every donation made to make the monument a reality.

If you would like more information on how you, your business or school can become involved please contact julie.verne@nationalspitfireproject.org.
