Air Display To Go Ahead

Last minute sponsorship and a government grant saves Jersey's Air Show.

Last week, organisers said that a £75,000 shortfall in funding meant that the display 'was in danger of being cancelled.'

They asked for 15 companies or islanders to come forward with £5,000 each to secure its finances.

More than £50,000 was raised by ten different companies and individuals.

The Economic Development department increased its grant by an additional £20,000.

Mike Higgins, the air display organiser, is grateful for the financial support:

"They have also ensured that we have not lost another visitor attraction and its important contribution to the Island economy."

The Air Display will be held on Thursday 14 September.
