  • Airplay artists take off

    Our Airplay project provides facilities and youth support for young people growing up on RAF stations. We have recently run a drawing competition for budding RAF artists who are taking part in Airplay. We have had a fantastic response and now we have three winners.

  • Award for tireless support

    Every year the RAF Benevolent Fund makes an award to recognise an outstanding supporter. This year the RAFBF Poignard was awarded to Damian Pinel from RAF Community Support.

  • Airplay drawing competition

    Growing up on an RAF base isn't always easy. They are mostly in isolated locations and one of your parents will often be away on deployment or training. That’s why we’ve set up Airplay, our programme to support RAF families and young people.
