97 thank yous to mark RAF97

On 1 April the RAF Benevolent Fund launched a month of celebrations to mark the Royal Air Force's 97th birthday and set out to thank some of its most generous, creative, and long-standing supporters, volunteers, and fundraisers.

Wayne DennisWayne Dennis is just one of many brilliant people who have supported our charity. Wayne ran 156 miles through the Sahara desert to raise money for us.

As April ends, so do our RAF97 celebrations. It's been a brilliant month for thanking our superstar supporters, with 97 'Shout Outs' on Twitter and our annual RAFBF Awards ceremony. 

Up and down the country and even overseas, thousands of people each year help us raise vital funds to help members of the RAF family in need. Feeling inspired to help? Check out our video on ways to join in.

Last year the RAF Benevolent Fund spent nearly £19 million helping around 40,000 members of the RAF family – from the young children growing up on RAF stations to our WW2 veterans. We are only able to do this because of the incredible generosity and efforts of our supporters.  

So here's one last shout out to all our brilliant fundraisers, supporters, and volunteers. Thank you!
