100 years standing side by side with the RAF Family

One Heart Spring 2018

Welcome to this special edition of One Heart (PDF 1.89MB) to mark the centenary of the Royal Air Force. This commemorative issue reflects on the RAF's first 100 years and demonstrates how your generosity provides a vital lifeline for RAF Family members when they find themselves in need.

Helping Mr & Mrs Scott Stay Together

Meet husband and wife of 72 years Owen and Nancy Scott, who both played a key role in bombing runs into German territory. When the outgoings on the flat Owen and Nancy had lived in for 25 years became a real struggle, you were there to help them through a time of financial worry and they were able to stay in their home together.

Supporting Serving Families

Sergeant Steve Lawrence, an Air Force engineer for 23 years, and his wife Laura turned to the RAF Benevolent Fund when Laura's multiple sclerosis worsened. Thanks to your support, we were on hand to make their home as accessible as possible for Laura, with adaptations made to give Laura comfort and independence in her own home.
