Fundraising campaign for airfield tribute

The Friends of Lavenham Airfield organisation is raising funds to build a memorial to the USAAF’s 487th Bomb Group, which flew from the Suffolk base during World War Two. The first bricks were laid on January 20 and the Lavenham group hopes to unveil the tribute to coincide with the 75th anniversary of VE Day in May. It has set up a Just Giving appeal to support the campaign: www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/487th-memorial
