Deborah & Mike will be using this flight to raise funds for and awareness of the Blind Veterans UK.
Blind Veterans UK was set up by the founder of the Daily Express, Sir Arthur Pearson in 1915 to support ex-servicemen.
It continues to provide free support and services to vision impaired ex-armed forces and national service personnel.
Mike is very grateful to Blind Veterans UK for the support it gave him after he became severely sight impaired at the end of 2007.
