By the Jon Egging Trust
The Jon Egging Trust (JET) was created in the memory of Flight Lieutenant Jon Egging who lost his life whilst completing a display with the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team at the Bournemouth Air Festival. Jon was an inspirational person and inspiration is at the heart of everything we do. Like Jon, our staff and volunteers are chosen for their ability to act as positive role models; in turn they inspire and enthuse our young people to reach their full potential. Because of Jon’s passion we have a strong commitment from the RAF, who are providing a unique opportunity for young people to experience new ways of learning with inspirational role models and developing skills in preparation for their future.
JET believes that through inspiration and support, every young person can overcome adversity, identify their strengths and reach their full potential.
We are now looking to develop stronger community links increasing the number of opportunities available to young people in York, with the support of volunteers in the community.

Here is Naomi’s story:
Naomi worked for 72 Squadron at RAF Linton-on-Ouse and was very good friends with the Point of Contact. After meeting with JET’s national volunteer and development manager, Naomi knew she wanted to make a difference to young people by volunteering for JET in the North Yorkshire area.
“Volunteering with JET affords you the opportunity to motivate, inspire and support young people in a generation who I think need it most. The level of support I have received as a volunteer with JET has been outstanding. Personal investment and development for volunteers with opportunities to gain more experience is a reason why I choose to remain involved with JET.”
