We’re the charity that supports the RAF family
We believe every generation owes a debt of gratitude to the RAF and their families. To protect the peace and safety we enjoy every day, they sacrifice the normal way of life most people take for granted. When someone in the RAF family needs help, the charity they turn to is the Royal Air Forces Association.
Welcome to the Royal Air Forces Association’s (RAFA) Costa Blanca Branch’s new website, RAFA is a forward looking organisation and a registered charity, There are RAFA Branches throughout the World with a total of over 60,000 members. In Spain there are, at present, three branches. North Costa Blanca Branch located in the Denia area, the Costa del Sol Branch in Benalmadena and this the local Costa Blanca Branch in Torrevieja. These branches continually monitor the needs of ex-RAF personnel and their dependents who live in Spain, regardless of whether they are members of the Association or not.
Although one of the lesser known charities, especially in Spain, the welfare and social ethos of the Association will continue to be at the forefront of all actions and this will, hopefully, continue for many years to come.with over 63,500 members world-wide, and provides friendship and welfare support for serving and ex-serving RAF personnel and their dependants – over 40,000 individuals are helped each year. We hope that as you read further through the links on our website that you will enthused to join our Branch, Over the years our Branch has been active we have been very lucky in having people prepared to give of their time and talents in assisting the Royal Air Force Family, sadly many are no longer with us but if you are a member who has not joined in for a while it would be great to see you again, we know you will still have plenty to offer.
