A few months ago members of the SkillForce team met with staff from the British Model Flying Association and since then have been discussing ways our two organisations could work together.
We’re pleased to say that the relationship has really taken off and we’re now looking forward to collaborating in lots of different ways, which will benefit the young people our SkillForce programmes are delivered to and in turn bring a new audience to aeromodelling and the BMFA.
We’re excited that as part of our work together the BMF Aerojet model will be used in activities as part of the Prince William Pioneer Award and the BMFA has chosen SkillForce as its partner charity, giving us a great opportunity to connect with its members and help them discover more about our pioneering character education programmes.
This weekend (25th-27th Aug) sees the BMFA hold the 2018 Nationals at RAF Barkston Heath and SkillForce will be there! We’re looking forward to attending the event and meeting as many BMFA members and visitors as possible. We’ll have a SkillForce stall so look out for us.
This is potentially a very exciting partnership for the charity as we build on the success of all of our programmes and we are thrilled that the BMFA feels its ethos and values are aligned with those that are so important to us at SkillForce.
