About the project
The Sea King Cafe has already started and become a reality but I am struggling to purchase all the required parts due to lack of funds and that's where I need you. On the 4th Janaury I won Sea King XZ598 at an auction but she was merely a shell. So far I have invested over £10,000 into buying and restoring her. I have now reached the point where I can't invest anymore for the time being, so I need help to speed up the process.
I have transported XZ598 to a secure location in Scarborough where the work will be carried out. Ultimately I plan to keep her within Scarborough and hope to work with the local council to find a suitable location where everyone can come and enjoy her.
How will your pledge help ?
You will be helping to create a unique cafe in a beautiful seaside location that has seen this actual Sea King in action on rescues during her flying days. For your help you will be rewarded some of the rewards are:
- Free coffee for a year.
- Custom T-shirts
- Canvas Prints
- Private launch party event with outdoor cinema screening
- Your name on a rotor blade
- An opportunity to name the Helicopter
Canvas Print 12"x12" - 5 Left Available £50 Reward
Canvas Print 16"x16" - 5 Left Available £80 Reward
Following the crowdfunding I will be able to purchase the missing parts required to get the once awesome flying machine back to her former glory. She is in a pretty sorry state at the moment and needs your help. Although she won't fly again, I am determined to get XZ598 back looking like a helicopter for all to enjoy once again.
How can you find out more ?
I will be updating the following pages over the course of the restoration project. I will be uploading regular videos and images so you can see the transformation in real time.
