Join the BFBS Big Salute Big Breakfast

Cooking Up Cash for Armed Forces Charities

This year’s BFBS Big Salute Big Breakfast campaign week is a chance for units, schools, colleagues and friends to come together and cook up some cash for armed forces charities.

To help with the planning, we’ve produced a downloadable Fundraising Pack at with creative ideas for work, school and home – there’s even a printable poster and bunting to decorate a kitchen, canteen or cookhouse. The pack is also available via email at

From 30 September to 4 October, Richard Hatch and Verity Geere will be out and about in the UK with their Forces Radio BFBS Breakfast Show (0630-10 UK) from RAF Waddington on Monday to Portsmouth Historic Dockyard on the Friday.

And during the campaign week we’ll also be hearing about the BFBS Big Salute Big Breakfast from overseas locations on Totally Connected on Forces Radio BFBS from 10am (UK).

The charities most recently supported by the BFBS Big Salute are:

  • Building Heroes,
  • Bournemouth War Memorial Homes,

  • AF & V Launchpad Ltd,

  • Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity,
