London Luton Airport Charity Partnership 2016/17

LLA 1London Luton Airport (LLA) has announced Keech Hospice Care as its new charity partner for 2016 and 2017.

The two-year partnership aims to raise a total of more than £50,000 to help Keech deliver much needed hospice care to both children and adults across Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Milton Keynes.

Keech was chosen following a public vote in which they received the support of more than 12,000 people, including jazz-pop singer and songwriter Jamie Cullum, McBusted’s Harry Judd, golfer Ian Poulter and chef Jean-Christophe Novelli.

Airport staff are already planning world record attempts, pop-up stores in the terminal and even a fire walk to meet the ambitious target.

Neil Thompson, Operations Director at London Luton Airport, said “We’re delighted to be supporting Keech to provide care to adults, children and their families. Keech is a fantastic local charity and our staff are excited that the public chose to make it their winner.

“The two-year partnership will coincide with one of the most exciting periods for the airport as we are spending £110 million to transform the airport and expand capacity. The partnership with Keech is just one of the ways in which we are working to make sure that LLA’s growth benefits the whole of the local community.”
