All at the Fund are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of our Patron Her Majesty The Queen and send our condolences to all the Royal Family at this sad time.
Air Vice-Marshal Chris Elliot, Controller of the RAF Benevolent Fund, said: “As our beloved Patron, Her Majesty inspired our work daily.
“Her Majesty knew only too well the sacrifices of a lifetime of service, in her own service to the throne, but also in her close relationship with all of her Armed Forces. She was steadfast in her commitment to the Royal Air Force, and we were honoured Her Majesty chose to become our Patron back in 1952.”
Chairman of the RAF Benevolent Fund, Richard Daniel, added: “Her Majesty The Queen demonstrated during her reign the true spirit of public service and integrity, and the significance of the military service. A tireless supporter of our work, Her Majesty was an example to us all and her legacy will live on for generations to come.”
In remembrance, please create your special dedication to Her Majesty The Queen. Send thanks to her unwavering commitment to the country following a historic 70 years on the throne.
