Here for our serving personnel… bringing parents home to their children at bedtime
The RAF Association provides recording equipment to parents for them to record their chosen stories. Once edited, a soundtrack is added to give each story a really special feel. The completed CD is then sent to the children in a personalised CD cover, and is ready for them to listen to whenever they like.
The RAF Association now supports 32 stations who participate in this growing and popular project, and RAF personnel are also able to record stories while in Theatre, with two recorders in Afghanistan plus another at RAF Mount Pleasant in the Falkland Islands.
How can I help?
We couldn’t run this initiative without the generous donation of time from our volunteer editors, if you’d like to find out more about becoming a volunteer Storybook Wings editor, please get in touch with us by email.
