The RAF Association
The RAF Association is dedicated to supporting serving and former RAF personnel and their families. Whether it’s an injured airman fighting to get back onto his feet, a young daughter missing her parent away on overseas operations or a WWII veteran needing a shoulder to lean on, we are there to help. Membership of the RAF Association offers a wide range of benefits for all those with an interest in supporting our aims. It is also a membership organisation. With around 70,000 members and 500 branches in the United Kingdom, throughout Europe and further afield, membership offers a wide range of benefits for serving or former RAF personnel and those with an interest in aviation.
The Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund
We are the RAF's leading welfare charity providing practical, financial and emotional support to all members of the RAF family, from childhood through to old age. We help with issues from childcare and relationship difficulties to injury and disability, and from financial hardship and debt to illness and bereavement.
The Royal Air Force Charitable Trust
The Royal Air Force Charitable Trust is the youngest of the Royal Air Force's family of charities and provides financial support to a wide variety of projects and initiatives that benefit RAF serving personnel, young people and RAF veterans. Its aims are to support the Royal Air Force to enhance the environment of serving personnel and their families; and a commitment to young people, to initiate and develop within them an enthusiasm for aviation. It particularly likes to support projects and welfare facilities that will benefit those preparing for, or serving on front-line deployments and their families at RAF stations around the country. The majority of the Charitable Trust's revenue comes from its trading company, the Royal Air Force Charitable Trust Enterprises, who organise the world-famous Royal International Air Tattoo and a prestigious national tour by the bands of the Royal Air Force each year.
Flying Scholarships for Disabled People
Over the past 33 years, FSDP have helped over 400 disabled men and women change their lives, by experiencing the joy of freedom in the air, learning new skills, regaining confidence, and who have “reached for the sky”. Did you know that of all disabled people less than 20% are born with their condition; the majority become disabled during their lives. It really could happen to any of us. Our scholars have a range of disabilities and illnesses including, amputation, paraplegia, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, spina bifida, and poliomyelitis. Some are born with their conditions, others have them as the result of an accident or of contracting a disease, or even because they have been a victim of a terrorist bombing. Please help us continue to provide flying scholarships for disabled people by making a donation; believe us, it really does change lives! Thank you

Push 1000 Miles

Sean Allerton

My page:

But I would walk 500 miles - Done 500 miles done! 
And I would walk 500 more - Done 500 miles done! 
Just to be the man who walked 1000 miles -Blank welcome to my challenge...

The Proclaimers would walk 500 miles... but I can't walk. Being confined to a wheelchair I want to raise funds and awareness for great charities that I have an interest in and to whom I am indebted to.  Having completed the first 500 miles, the second 500 miles too, the next part of my challenge is to push 1000 miles for these fantastic charities. Please see the Push 500 website for full details about the challenge and the charities, and to check up on my progress.

I have received sponsorship and support from Angela Baxter's efforts of walking the West Highland Way (WHW), Neil and Nigel walking Hadrian's Wall, Sconnie Collins and Pete Rae's walk for the Band of Brothers Reunion in Grantham, the Band of Brothers reunion raise a gigantic amount for the challenge, and Tony Cann's efforts supporting Push 500 at various events including the Great North Run (using a wheelchair). Also supporting Push 500 are Richard and Matthew Kirkham who ran both the Hardmore Ultra and the Coniston Lakeland Trials Marathon, and will be running the Centenary Way (York Minster to Filey Brigg - 80+ miles) for Push 500 (and 1000). 

Thank you to all of them for their contributions and support, to The Proclaimers too - and expecialy to every one of you that support my challenge which, in turn, supports and promotes four charities which, cliché aside, really can change lives.

Follow the Push 500 (and 1000) Wheelchair Challenge on Facebook at, and Twitter at @push500.

Please remember to select Gift Aid when you sponsor/donate as this really makes a difference too. On behalf of my charities and myself, thank you.
