Aviation Club UK

The Aviation Club UK, founded in 1990, is a networking forum for its members and a vehicle for promoting and developing all aspects of civil aviation. The Club kindly chose Orbis as their charity partner in January 2017 and have committed their support until December 2021.

Each year The Aviation Club hosts seven Club Lunches, an annual Summer Reception, three International events and four networking events for the Young Aviation Professionals Group. Orbis is regularly invited to attend events to network and meet with Aviation Club members. An annual fundraising raffle in aid of Orbis is held at the Christmas Club lunch, which has cumulatively raised over £6,000 since 2017.

Karl Brünjes, Chairman of Aviation Club UK, says:

Orbis real­ly do change lives and the Avi­a­tion Club is proud to be asso­ci­at­ed with such a won­der­ful organ­i­sa­tion. The Fly­ing Eye Hos­pi­tal is a unique facil­i­ty and I hope that through the Club’s sup­port we can make more peo­ple aware of the fan­tas­tic work it does. In our indus­try, vision is so impor­tant and it’s easy to take for grant­ed. So this is a cause which has par­tic­u­lar mean­ing for us.

Kathryn Sweet, Head of Partnerships, Orbis UK, says:

Part­ner­ing with Avi­a­tion Club UK is a fan­tas­tic oppor­tu­ni­ty for Orbis, and I am so thank­ful to the Club for select­ing our cause. I am look­ing for­ward to work­ing with the Com­mit­tee and mem­bers to pro­vide an inter­est­ing insight into the role of avi­a­tion in the fight against avoid­able blind­ness, and easy ways in which they can sup­port our work.
