Lisa's RAFBF Award

Lisa Bailey, from Lincoln, picked up an award for her dedication to youth support at RAF Scampton at the RAF Benevolent Fund's annual award ceremony.

Lisa Bailey

Lisa is the 4Children Airplay Youth Worker at RAF Scampton and in 2014 delivered an incredible programme of activities, including a visit to World War One battlefields in France, a World War Two-era tea dance at RAF Kirton in Lindsey, and a trip to the poppy installation at the Tower of London. 
 
Lisa said: "I'm absolutely thrilled to win this award.  RAF Scampton and Community Development Officer Gill Angel are incredibly supportive of our Airplay programme and as a team we are able to bring the young people's ideas to life.  The ideas, enthusiasm, and support from everyone engaged in the programme is so empowering and as a youth worker, it’s wonderful to see the Airplay participants learning, gaining confidence, and having a great time too."
 
Paul Hughesdon, Director of Welfare and Policy at the RAF Benevolent Fund, said: "Growing up on an RAF Station is never easy, with the children facing frequent moves and long separations from their serving parent. Lisa has made a huge difference for the children at RAF Scampton.  The incredible level of engagement and her programme of activities shows Airplay at its best.”
 
The award was presented by Air Marshal Sir Stephen Hillier, Ambassador to the RAF Benevolent Fund.
