Weston’s Helicopter Museum has teamed up with a limbless war veteran charity for one of its biggest events.

The museum will support Blesma during its World at War Weekend which will be held from April 7-8.

Charity members will be based in the museum’s Duke of Edinburgh hangar during the weekend with a number of displays and activities planned to promote its work to support veterans who have lost limbs in combat.

Organiser and museum volunteer Simon Parks-Lockett said: “The most important part of the show for us each year is to work closely with a military charity and raise as much awareness and support for their cause as possible.

“Blesma offers amazing support to amputee veterans and we are delighted to be welcoming so many of their incredible members to the museum during the event.”

One-armed motorbike racer Chris Ganley will also be in attendance.
