The LPG (Lightning Preservation Group) run events each year for all ages and we take great pride to make sure everyone has as much fun as they can, however it costs a lot of money to fill up a fuel tank on one of our Lightning’s, even more for 2 of them!  We would encourage you to donate to the LPG as all donations and money we raise go towards keeping our Lightning’s alive at Bruntingthorpe so if you feel you can make a donation please use the Donate Button below.
