Tesco Elgin will host a Battle of Britain Tea Party for the RAF Benevolent Fund.
To mark the 81st anniversary the team are calling on the public to join them in honouring those brave airmen who fought for freedom in the skies of Great Britain.
The tea party will take place this weekend, September 17-18. The Tesco café team will be serving up cake and tea for a donation towards the RAF Benevolent Fund, the RAF’s leading welfare charity.
Stephen McEwan, store manager said: “We’re delighted and proud to support the work of the RAF Benevolent Fund. Lots of our customers and colleagues are RAF veterans and it will be great to have the RAF Benevolent Fund here to raise awareness of the fantastic services that they provide.”
The RAF Benevolent Fund provides financial, practical and emotional support to all members of the RAF family whether they are serving or former members as well as their partners and dependants. They help members of the RAF family deal with a wide range of issues: from childcare and relationship difficulties to injury and disability, and from financial hardship and debt to illness and bereavement.
Michelle Jeffcott, regional fundraiser, said: “There is a huge RAF family in Moray, we welcome the support of businesses like Tesco who offer us the opportunity to engage with the community by letting them know more about the support services we provide. Before the pandemic we estimated that 27,000 members of the RAF family in Scotland needed support with some 9000 needing urgent support.”
