76 YEARS OF 16 AIR ASSAULT - AIRBORNE 16

Airborne 16 celebrated the 76th anniversary of 16 Air Assault in Colchester.

To enhance this Friends and Families’ style event and keep both the adults and children occupied, we provided various daytime entertainment elements.

Princess Anna and Spiderman did walkabout sets, interacting with the children - some of the boys got a little boisterous with Spiderman, but it was nothing he couldn’t handle! We also provided face painters and a glitter tattooist who had plenty of designs to suit everyone.

Our unlimited popcorn and candyfloss went down a treat, and for those seeking more of a thrill, we had a rodeo bull, inflatable assault course and forces favourite, the dodgems!

After the event, Project Officer Captain Tranham said we were 'Very helpful and understanding of service needs'.
