Give in memory
The current Covid-19 pandemic may mean that it is difficult to say goodbye and commemorate a loved as you would wish.
If all family and friends are unable to attend a loved one’s funeral this can be extremely upsetting. However, there are still ways that friends and family can work together to remember and commemorate a loved one.
Set up an online Tribute Fund
By setting up an online Tribute Fund, you can share memories, pictures and stories about your loved one, as well as raise funds and receive donations that may otherwise have been collected at a funeral. These pages last forever and you can visit them at any time.
Create a Dedication
Creating a Dedication is a lovely way to commemorate your loved one. Find out how you can create a dedication.
Simply follow the online donation process and choose the amount you want to donate; after you enter your name on the following pages please check the box: 'My donation is in memory of someone'.
You will then be asked for some more details about your loved one. If you would like us to write to the family or next of kin, please ask and we will be happy to do so.
Please send cheques payable to 'RAF Benevolent Fund' to our freepost address:

Please include a short covering letter with your name and address and the details of the person you are remembering. If you would like us to write to the family or next of kin please ask, and we will be happy to do so.
