Support for veterans group

On July 30 at 12 noon the local branch of the RAF Police Association - the South Downs Branch - is to present a cheque of £1,200 to the Blind Veterans UK (formerly St Dunstan’s). This charity is the chosen organisation of this branch of the RAFPA.

Many events are organised throughout the year and a percentage is usually given to the chosen charity.

On a previous occasion the branch formed an escort party for the late Henry Allingham who was himself an honorary member of the branch.

This is one of the few branches to have an exhibition tent at an air show and again we will be at this year’s Shoreham Air Show.

The organisation membership is open to past and present members of the military and civilian police.
