Project team

The Hawker Typhoon Preservation Group is formed of three trustees. Their responsibility is to safeguard the legality of the charity and ensure, through the appointment of a Director and subsequent forming of a team, that the aims of the charity are being met. Without the trustees the charity would not exist. They, along with all the team members, are volunteers, giving their time freely in the pursuit of this endeavour. Moreover, they are friends, doing something in their spare time that many have previously said is impossible.

Sam Worthington-Leese

Project Director and Trustee

Richard Spreckley​​

Deputy Director and Trustee

Alex Davies

Technical Manager and Trustee

The project team is led by the Project Director, and assisted by the Deputy Project Director. Together, they lead a dedicated, all volunteer team who all work incredibly hard in their spare time, around full time jobs and family life in working towards achieving the charity’s aims. Their growing expertise in areas of technology, event planning, partner engagement, fundraising and social media are critical to the success of the project now and in the future. The project would not be where it is today without this small, but passionate and hardworking team, who all sacrifice a great amount to ensure the continued success and progress of the project.
