Welcome to the Royal Air Forces Association’s (RAFA) Penrith Branch’s new website.
RAFA is a forward looking organisation and a registered charity, with over 63,500 members world-wide, providing friendship, support and welfare 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, Our branch needs people with a little time and individual talents to assist in the fundraising activities throughout the year, raising the funds required to deliver our support and welfare. 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.
Our meetings are currently being held in the Royal British Legion, Penrith on the second Sunday of each month at 19:30. Please come along and give your support to the committee, we are always looking to recruit additional volunteers to enable us to do more in relation to fundraising. The more we can do, the more we can provide to our current serving Royal Air Force personnel, Air Force veterans and their families.
