What a superb day for the children at the beginning of their trip of a lifetime.
Bathed in sunshine the specially prepared British Aiways B747 awaits the arrival of the coaches full of young excited Dreamflight children.
190 carefully chosen youngsters along with some 200 carers, doctors and nurses 18 volunteer flight and cabin crew prepare to depart to Orlando, Florida.The Jamega Team permitted "airside" to watch & appreciate this massive operation.
This, our nominated charity swinging into action, scores of volunteers assisting the loading and organising of an unbelievable amount of equipment to ensure that the next 10 days in Florida goes smoothly.
The passengers arrive many in wheelchairs to be assisted in boarding by teams of expert British Airways groundstaff. Bringing a tear to the eye and a lump to the throat as we wave goodbye to the departing volunteers and children. See photographs below.

History was made at our tournament at Five Lakes when the professional ranks were increased by one.
Amateurs turning professional with Jamega is a common occurance but at this tournament Andy Gardiner made golfing history by becoming the first amputee to turn professional.
Andy, an ex British Pistol Shooting Team member, had his lower right leg severely damaged in a freak accident and thereafter having to spend years in a wheelchair has now found a prosthethis which gives him sufficient stability to enable him not only to take up golf but to become a scratch amateur and now onto the stage as a professional.
A superb achievement and we wish him well. You can view the BBC artile at the link below.
