I am always humbled when I hear stories about the men and women of the Royal Air Force and the sacrifices they have made.
Without their bravery we would not enjoy the freedom we have today, and I think it’s important that we do all that we can to thank them. That’s why I’m supporting the RAF Benevolent Fund and its Great British Sunday Lunch fundraiser, taking place across the country on Sunday, April 2.
The charity is calling on us to gather together over our much cherished Sunday lunch to raise funds for its important work, while celebrating and remembering all those who serve or have served in the RAF.
Your support will ensure the RAF Benevolent Fund can continue to be there for the whole RAF family when they need it most, from the youngest child on an RAF station to Second World War veterans.
I do hope people will join me this year in supporting the RAF Benevolent Fund.

What better excuse to bring family, friends and communities together to enjoy a slap-up meal?
Dame Barbara Windsor,
On behalf of the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund
