The RAF Benevolent Fund would like to wish you a very happy Christmas and say a big thank-you for all your fantastic support this year.

The 1940 Chronicle was our campaign to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Britain. It was an important chance to thank all those who served during the Battle and to reflect on the sacrifices they made to protect our freedom.

The Chronicle was a tremendous success, helping to bring alive the Battle for thousands of our Facebook, Twitter and website followers and to raise awareness of our work with the RAF family. Thanks so much for taking part, we could not have done it without you!

How you can make a difference

This Christmas, spare a thought for those who fought in the Battle of Britain, and those who are fighting today in Afghanistan.

We rely on your support to make a difference to these RAF heroes. Please keep in touch with us so we can keep you informed about our work and if you can spare a few pounds please make a donation.

The Debt we Owe

"Never in the field of human conflict, was so much owed by so many to so few...Let us all welcome this chance to pay a small measure of the debt we owe." Churchill makes an appeal on behalf of the RAFBF.
