Give the gift of friendship this Christmas

Can you brighten up Christmas for ex-service, Royal Air Forces (RAF) personnel?

Christmas lights

Over 170,000 veterans in the RAF say they are lonely. And this year, due to Covid-19,  those without relatives, or close friends nearby, will feel even more abandoned during the festive season.

But you can make a difference by contributing to the Royal Air Forces’ Association Connections for Life service.

Your donation ensures that lonely ex-service personnel are rung by a friendly,  trained volunteer, and not just at Christmas.

Veteran Clive has already benefited from the service and shares his story. He says:

“Thanks to your support I won’t feel lonely this Christmas, and neither will thousands of other veterans.”
