Bertie is a bear who loves travelling to help member of the RAF family who feel lonely. No one should feel isolated or lonely. However, many elderly veterans or their widows live alone and find themselves facing loneliness, despite the sacrifices they’ve made.
This is where Bertie comes in. His goal is to help develop friendships and companionship through RAFA’s befriending service.
Right now, there are RAF veterans near you who are lonely and isolated. You could help change this. Become a befriender today and support Bertie’s mission. Or buy your own Bertie Bear and share his travels with us – we share Bertie’s stories with the people our befrienders visit.
If you’re a member of the RAF family and are living alone and you’d like someone to visit you for a cup of tea and a chat, please get in touch with us.
