The RAF Benevolent Fund’s new ‘Great British Sunday Lunch’ fundraiser

Remember ‘The Few’ and help raise money to make veterans’ lives more comfortable

The Great British Sunday Lunch – Sunday 13th September 2015

This year marks the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain, when ‘The Few’ took to the skies and defended the UK from the attacking Luftwaffe. To mark the anniversary the RAF Benevolent Fund, the RAF’s leading welfare charity, is launching the Great British Sunday Lunch – the new national fundraising event aimed at getting families and friends back around the dinner table.

Whether it is a full-on roast dinner with all the trimmings or a favourite curry, the Fund is asking supporters to get together and host a Sunday lunch on Sunday 13th September to raise vital funds. What better way to pay tribute to those who have served their country than by serving up some delicious food?

By supporting the RAF Benevolent Fund, diners will be supporting work to assist veterans, serving personnel and their families who are facing challenges in their lives. The Fund receives no government grants and last year spent more than £18 million supporting 40,000 members of the RAF family, from the youngest child growing up on a RAF Station to our WWII veterans.

A great range of celebs have provided recipes and hosting tips for the campaign, including Jodie Kidd, Rick Stein, Val Warner, Hummingbird Bakery and Tom Kitchin. So why not join in and make the first Great British Sunday Lunch a great success.
