In Memory Giving

Donating in memory can be a positive way to remember a loved one or colleague whilst helping their favourite cause

In memory giving - Remember someone special

Donating in someone’s memory is a touching way to remember a loved one by honouring their life and remembering them fondly, whilst supporting a cause that was important to them.

Remember their happy memories of Concorde, passion for aviation or perhaps their aeronautical career, while helping the museum to reach it’s goals.

Your kindness will ensure that at Aerospace Bristol, we can continue to preserve and celebrate past engineering heritage, whilst inspiring the next generation of engineers and innovators.

Whether a collection from the funeral, a donation to mark a birthday or special anniversary or a lasting tribute, donating in someone’s memory can be a positive way to mark the passing of a loved one or colleague whilst supporting their favourite cause.

Donate in memory

There are a range of ways you can make an in-memory donation, suitable for a Concorde admirer or aviation enthusiast. You can make a personal donation, or group together with friends and colleagues by supporting something inside the museum.

Sponsor a Concorde seat on board Concorde Alpha Foxtrot and choose a seat on a route around the Bay of Biscay or to JFK. You can write a personalised dedication in memory, to be included on the Concorde ‘departure board’ inside the museum for all to see. To find out which seats are available to support and for more information about sponsoring a Concorde seat in someone’s memory, please visit the Concorde Club.

You can dedicate a permanent plaque which will be carefully engraved with your loved one's name and any message you choose. A plaque can be included on a lecture seat inside the John James Lecture Theatre, on a visitor bench admiring Concorde, or within the museum’s outdoor seating area.

Preserve their memory by adding a donation in their name on the Concorde Memory Map. Share a special Concorde memory or anecdote on the online Concorde Memory Map to be preserved in our digital archive. This is on display on an archive station inside the Concorde hangar for you to visit and reflect.

We would be pleased to discuss the range of ways you can support a fitting tribute at the home of Concorde. Please contact the Nia Spilsbury in the fundraising team on the contact details below, thank you.

Bob Feilden is remembered by an appreciative family. In the early 1940s he was part of the Power Jet team, developing the first jet engine with Frank Whittle. Later Bob became Director General of the British Standards Institution, often quoting the first of his ‘Feilden’s Laws’: Do it Once, Do it Right, Do it Internationally. He always took a great interest in Concorde and love flying in her.
