Our Grateful thanks to Tim Willbond OBE

After several years as a very active volunteer and support of our charity. Tim has sadly left the area and so has resigned from his position as ambassador at the Oswin Project.  We are grateful for the huge contribution he has made and wish him and his wife every happiness for the future.

Tim served for 31 years in the Royal Air Force and retired early to join the aerospace industry where he was one of the pioneers of unmanned aviation ; He helped form and chaired the Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Trade Association. Upon retiring for the second time to Northumberland he became a Divisional Secretary and brand champion for SSAFA the Armed forces charity with a particular interest in Veterans in the Criminal Justice system. As a Deputy Lord Lieutenant for Northumberland he has worked on a number of County projects delivering County wide activities celebrating national events. As Vice Chairman (Air) of the Reserve Forces and Cadets’ Association for the North of England he works with young people across the region and maintain links with industry through the Armed Forces Covenant.
