A tribute to bravery

Starting on July 10 and continuing throughout the summer, people across the country will be marking the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain. As we recall those fateful days and celebrate the bravery of the airmen involved, we also remember our enduring debt of gratitude to all who serve or have served.

The RAF Benevolent Fund believes it is important for the country to share in the memory of that battle, which played out in the summer skies overhead and saw the heroism of The Few save Britain from invasion. We want to invite people across the UK to join us in showing their thanks for The Few and celebrating a defining moment in our nation’s history.

That is why we are launching the RAF Benevolent Fund’s inaugural Great British Sunday Lunch – a chance for families, friends, and communities to gather together on Sunday 13th September to host their own lunch, whether it be around the dining table or on a picnic rug in the late summer sun. We hope your readers will join us in honouring The Few and helping us raise vital funds so we can continue to support RAF veterans, serving personnel and their families. Your readers can find more information and sign up at www.rafbf.org/gbsl.
