BATTLE OF BRITAIN: Help us to honour men

Have your say

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 a few fearless men save Britain from invasion. We want to invite people across the UK to join us in showing their thanks to these legends of the skies and celebrate 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, September 13, 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 these men and help us to raise vital funds so we can continue to support RAF veterans, serving personnel and their families.
