Hello you lovely lot, it’s the last episode of series 3 today, and this time I have been talking to the completely inspirational Dr. Emma Egging, from the Jon Egging Trust.
On 20th August 2011, Flt Lt Jon Egging lost his life whilst completing a display at the Bournemouth Air Festival. He was coming to the end of his first year flying with the Red Arrows – his wife Emma was watching.
Emma, along with Jons mum and friends launched the Jon Egging Trust, a charity that supports struggling children to reach their full potential.
The charity website describes Jon as an inspirational person and it’s this inspiration that’s at the heart of everything they do.
The accredited programmes increase young peoples’ self-confidence, self-esteem and other vital life and work skills and empower them to become role models within their own communities.
The Jon Egging Trust realises Jon’s dream of inspiring young people through his love of aviation, teamwork and leadership, helping them to overcome adversity, identify their strengths and work towards their ambitions – with Emma leading the charge.
