This year's charity is the RAF Benevolent Fund, which helps veterans young and old, with everything from injury or illness, to financial hardship, disability and wellbeing.  It is felt this is an appropriate charity as 2018 is the 100th anniversary of the forming of the RAF and the 75th anniversary of the Dam Busters raid in which so many young men lost their lives. Please come along & encourage others also to support this event & charity as much as you can.
