The Barnet Eye Advent Calendar - 20th December

Five days to go until Santa comes down the Chimney.  We've been enjoying this series, we hope you have. 

Today we visit Colindale, which back in 1917 was leading the world in the field of flying. Our video today looks at the historic Graham White flying school based at Hendon Aerodrome (now Grahame Park estate). An amazing video showing a trainee pilot receiving instruction in the art of flying

It really is amazing to think just how far the aviation industry has come.

And our charity today is one close to my heart.Cherry Lodge Cancer Care provides support for people living with Cancer - http://www.cherrylodgecancercare.org.uk/about-cherry-lodge/ - They say about themselves.

Cherry Lodge Cancer Care is an independent charity committed to improving the quality of life for people living with cancer, their carers, family and friends.

At Cherry Lodge, we work alongside the clinical care of the NHS in an area centred on Barnet and covering much of North London and South Hertfordshire. We are based at the very friendly and welcoming Cherry Lodge Centre, in Union Street, Chipping Barnet. We also have an Outreach Service with an impact across the borough of Barnet, concentrating particularly on providing information and support to members of black and minority ethnic groups. Our Befriending Service provides additional support for people in their own homes.

Cherry Lodge provides free, high-quality information, support and complementary therapies to people affected by cancer. Our services enhance practical, emotional and physical well-being. We work in partnership with local hospitals and community healthcare providers

Volunteer support is at the heart of the Cherry Lodge Centre and at the heart of the services we provide. We value the time given by all our volunteers in helping us to achieve our mission to support people living with cancer, their family, friends and carers.
