Art to fly
Art to Fly, a specialist aviation artwork Website, was created by Pat Branard, long-time friend of Sir Douglas, as a way of supporting the Douglas Bader Foundation Young Aviator Days.
Art to Fly is a non-profit organisation and 100% of the profits of any sales will got to help disabled children experience the joy of flight through the Bader Braves Flying Days, details of which can be found on this Website.
You can find out more about Art to Fly and the aviation paintings and drawings, aircraft prints and books – all signed by famous WW11 pilots and carefully selected and attractively priced for aviation art collectors – by clicking on the banner to visit the Website: www.arttofly.org
Prestige car insurance
Prestige Keep Moving Insurance Policies – They provide a special car insurance scheme written for the specific needs of the disabled community, disabled passengers, and for their families or carers, for example: New for old cover for adaptations to vehicles, A ‘keep moving’ clause in the event of an accident or theft, Cover for wheelchairs and cover for vehicles that have been adapted for disabled passengers.
Their premise is that: “Based on claims statistics, we believe people with disabilities and their family members are more careful drivers and therefore less likely to make a claim. This means that we are able to quote lower insurance premiums…”
*Another advantage of the scheme is that Prestige will pay the DBF £10 for every new policy taken out by our supporters and £5 for every renewal, so please don’t forget to mention us if, after checking the details, you do decide to take out a policy with them.
DBF book store
Our book store is an external site, run by Amazon.co.uk, but selling books that we have chosen or have been reccommended to us. A percentage of the profits goes to The Douglas Bader Foundation to assist in the running of the LLIC website.
Please let us know of any books or publications you’ve enjoyed or found helpful and which you feel should be included in our store.
It goes without saying that we’d love to hear from you if you have anything you’d like to offer on this page to benefit the charity!
