We are once again thrilled and deeply grateful to receive a grant towards the cost of looking after RAF veterans in our care.
The RAF Benevolent Fund has awarded us £15,000, which follows a grant of £18,000 we received earlier this year from the charity.
The Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund is the RAF’s leading welfare charity. It exists to support current and former members of the RAF, their partners and dependants.
In 2019, the charity spent £28m supporting more than 71,000 members of the RAF Family.
Commodore Phil Waterhouse, chairman of the board of trustees of Broughton House, said: “We are incredibly grateful for the continued support of the RAF Benevolent Fund during this challenging period.
“Our former Royal Air Force and Women’s Auxiliary Air Force residents are extremely proud that they are still being supported by the RAFBF in life after service.”
Pete Ashcroft, RAF Benevolent Fund Welfare Projects Manager, said: “Working in partnership with organisations like Broughton House, the Fund is able to make a real difference to RAF veterans living in the Salford and Manchester area.
“This work is part of the Fund’s promise to ensure no RAF veteran faces adversity alone and veterans and their partners can look forward to their twilight years with dignity and independence.”
