A night to celebrate our wonderful supporters
The eighth annual RAF Benevolent Fund awards will be held on Tuesday 13 October.
The awards celebrate the extraordinary achievements of the dedicated individuals, groups, RAF stations and corporate partners who support the RAF Benevolent Fund.
Air Vice-Marshal Chris Elliot, Controller of the RAF Benevolent Fund, said:
“During my first few months at the Fund I was struck by the dedication of our supporters who go to incredible lengths to ensure we are able to continue our work supporting the RAF Family. The awards are our opportunity to celebrate those who make all of this possible and thank all our supporters. I’m looking forward to it!”
This year’s ceremony, supported by headline sponsor Lockheed Martin, will be held online and all supporters of the RAF Benevolent Fund are invited to watch the ceremony, hosted by voice of the X-Factor, Peter Dickson.
The shortlisted nominees all undertook their activities in 2019, the Fund’s centenary year, and between them climbed mountains, organised fundraising events and delivered services to the Fund’s beneficiaries.
