A charity established to help people in the aviation industry during the pandemic has received its first major donation.
Bristol airport has given £750 to help Aviation Action, which was set up in May. Aviation Action provides a range of support, including wellbeing and mental health coaching plus furlough and redundancy guidance.
It also helps with CV writing support and assistance in finding new employment within and outside the aviation industry.
The charity’s chair Chris Wild said it had been established to support everyone “from flight deck to firefighters and caterers to cabin crew”.
He added: “Since its launch, Aviation Action has already hosted a range of online events and supported hundreds of people globally.”
He said the donation would contribute towards more online events and help support volunteers.
