RAF Benevolent Fund invites supporters to take on Virtual Challenge

Amidst the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many of the RAF Benevolent Fund’s supporters have seen fundraising events they were due to participate in either postponed or cancelled throughout the coming months.

Although it may not currently be possible to run the London Marathon or complete the Three Peaks Challenge, the Fund is encouraging its supporters who are keen to continue their fundraising throughout these unprecedented times to consider taking part in a Virtual Challenge.

The RAF College Cranwell Virtual Challenge celebrates the Station’s centenary, challenging participants to complete a challenge in honour of its 100th birthday.

This can be completed by running, walking, or cycling 100 miles throughout the year, but fundraisers are invited to be as creative as they wish when choosing their challenge.  For example, they are welcome to bake 100 cakes, paint 100 paintings, or even knit 100 socks!

The event costs £20 to enter and participants will receive a special RAF Benevolent Fund and RAF College Cranwell centenary medal upon completion.

Lisa Hunt, Regional Fundraiser at the RAF Benevolent Fund spokesperson, said:

“We’d like to invite anyone that’s interested in fundraising for us to take part in the RAF College Cranwell Virtual Challenge. This can be completed from home and allows you to raise money for a worthy cause, regardless of how you choose to challenge yourself.”

“Your support is invaluable and will help us reach even more members of the RAF Family, continuing to offer our assistance to those who are most vulnerable at this trying time.”

The RAF Benevolent Fund encourages all participants to exercise in line with Government guidelines on social distancing.
