RAFA Shoreham Airshow

  Shoreham Airshow statement – Updated 01/09/2015

We remain devastated by the tragic crash which occurred during this year’s Shoreham air show.

Our thoughts and sympathies continue to be with all those who have been affected by the terrible events of the weekend, particularly those who so tragically lost their lives and those who were injured, their families and loved ones.

We have been overwhelmed by messages of sympathy and support, both from the local community and further afield.  Over the past few days, we have joined fellow members of the local community in laying floral tributes and observing a minute’s silence to honour all those affected.  For more information on other local community events being organised to remember those affected, please visit http://shorehamcondolence.org/community-events/

Undoubtedly, it has been a difficult time for all those who witnessed the crash and its aftermath.  Should anyone affected wish to access support over the coming days, weeks and months, please visit http://www.sussexpartnership.nhs.uk/shoreham-airshow-disaster-coping-and-moving-forward

We have also received a number of enquiries relating to the refund of unused tickets. Whilst some ticket holders have requested a full refund, we have also received requests to deal with individual refunds by way of a charitable donation. Further information about the charitable work of the Royal Air Force Association can be found at www.rafa.org.uk  To find out more about the fund set up by the Sussex Community Foundation, please visit www.justgiving.com/sussexgiving

Although our tickets are expressed to be non-refundable we want, as a charitable organisation, to ensure that the proceeds of any ticket sales are handled both appropriately and sensitively.

Accordingly, we invite anyone holding unused tickets for Sunday 23 August 2015 to complete the form (which can be downloaded here) indicating how they would like us to process their ticket refund. The completed form should be returned, along with the original, unused ticket(s), to the address on the form.  Only complete tickets will be accepted.

We are unable to process any refunds received after 27 November 2015. After this date, any ticket proceeds will be donated, in full, to the Royal Air Forces Association.
