Nominations open for RAF Benevolent Fund Awards 2024

Nominations for the RAF Benevolent Fund’s prestigious annual awards are now open. 

The awards give the Fund an opportunity to acknowledge the efforts of all our supporters – from dedicated individual supporters to exceptional support from RAF Stations and others delivering our services on the ground in 2023.

Do you know a group or an individual that went the extra mile in 2023 to help the RAF Benevolent Fund support the RAF Family? Or maybe you know a determined young supporter or an inspiring team of volunteer fundraisers from an RAF Squadron?

Air Vice-Marshal Chris Elliot, Controller of the RAF Benevolent Fund, said:

“Our Awards are a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the efforts of our generous supporters and those who tirelessly devote themselves to improving the lives of the RAF Family.

“The awards recognise the tremendous work that allows us to continue to support veterans, serving personnel and their families, and make a real impact to the lives of those who need us. Please get nominating!”

If you know someone whose efforts deserve recognition, head to for more information and to submit your nominations.
