Opening in 2018, the IBCC honours the wartime bravery of the men and women of Bomber Command.

The charity says its income was cut by 90% during lockdown, which has cast doubt over the future viability of the centre.

It's now started a crowdfunding campaign.

Lockdown has affected so many areas of our lives and, of course, many charities, including ourselves have lost substantial income. We are appealing to all our ardent supporters in both Lincolnshire, the UK and globally, to help ensure the story of the brave and often heroic members of Bomber Command are not lost but are heard, through the IBCC, for many years to come."
