Excellent news this morning from Mike Alexander the Senior Trials Officer, Avionics & Mission Systems at QinetiQ which is based on Wiltshire's Boscombe Down.
"...you may recall me mentioning that I had nominated the GBG for consideration for an award from QinetiQ's Systems Evaluation Services (SES) awards scheme (Good CauSES). This is a Business Group initiative to award modest amounts to charities close to Boscombe Down. At the time they were interested in sponsoring a chick and you kindly supplied the further details they required. Since then I have heard nothing except a global e-mail earlier in the year announcing charities they were supporting this year and the GBG was not on the list. As we are being 'restructured' I considered the matter closed and we had been unlucky.
Out of the blue this morning, I have received an e-mail from Alison Gurney, the good CauSES co-ordinator, asking me to supply contact details on an invoice for £300 for the GBG!"
Thanks Mike and thankyou Alison - we're very grateful, and will put your donation to good use straight away!
