Five organisations have been shortlisted as Luton Airport’s new charity partner.

The airport is asking members of the public to vote for their fundraising beneficiary for 2018 and 2019. The shortlisted charities are Alzheimer’s Research UK, Level Trust, Macmillan Cancer Support, Marie Curie and Mind BLMK.

The new partner will follow Luton Airport’s successful partnership with Keech Hospice Care. During their two-year partnership, the airport raised more than £90,000 for the hospice, beating their target of £50,000.

Events this year included the airport’s first ever ‘runway run’, and a sponsored cycle to Amsterdam which raised more than £50,000. An airport spokesman praised the “fantastic efforts of staff, passengers and airport partners”.

Voting closes at 12pm on Friday, December 1. To vote go to https://www.london-luton.co.uk/charity-partners

I should probably have taken the hint! Walking out into the garden recently an unprecedented flock of thirty or more crows raucously greeted me from the treetops at the bottom of my garden. Cawing and croaking these big, black birds clung clumsily to the top most branches and twigs, jostling and flapping to stay balanced in a constant flurry of feathers. There is always something ominous about crows – they are after all carrion crows, the vultures of the bird world – always watching for scraps and weakness that might mean their next meal.
