RAF Benevolent Fund donates
to St Nicholas Hospice Care
Bury St Edmunds

RAFBF cheque presentationGeoff Ware, Regional Director for the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund (RAFBF), visited St Nicholas Hospice Care in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk  on 8th May to present a cheque for £5,000.

The donation will go towards treating RAF family members who may need St Nicholas’ help. It will be used to treat people in the local community as well as patients in the Hospice.

St Nicholas Hospice cares for around 280 RAF families every single year, and the support of the RAFBF will allow them to continue this work in the coming months. 

Ben O’ Hanlon, St Nicholas Care Trusts and Statutory funding officer said:

“We are delighted that the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund has been able to support us. This money will help us to care for many more RAF families over the coming year. We know that the RAFBF receive a lot of applications for this type of funding so we are very thankful they have decided to present us with this cheque.”

Geoff Ware said:

“I am delighted to present this donation today, which should help the hospice continue the fantastic work it does for RAF families in need. Working in partnership with other charities in this way helps us deliver support where it is most needed, and is a key part of our role as the RAF’s leading welfare charity.”
