On top of the world

They were nominated by their local Lions Club to take part in the Aerobility event.

‘I enjoyed it very much.

‘I was a bit nervous to start with as I have never been on a plane.

‘My brother Keith came with me which helped to make me feel comfortable.’

— Linda, Sobell Lodge resident

Up for a challenge

The fearless residents travelled with staff and family to Blackbushe Airport in Surrey. 

They each went up in a plane with an instructor and, once at a high enough altitude, were able to take control!

‘I thought it was great and a great experience, would love to do it again.’ — Philip, Sobell Lodge resident

A massive thank you to Lions Club for funding the experience!
