To commemorate the 75th anniversary of the famous Dambusters raid, the April Fools Club is raising money for the RAF Benevolent Fund.

In particular the funds raised will help support the RAF Benevolent Fund's flagship care home, Princess Marina House, situated on the seafront in Rustington, West Sussex. The home offers a short recuperative break to serving or ex-Service members of the RAF family in a comfortable and tranquil environment.

The April Fools Club is organising two main fundraising events, the first of which was a gala dinner in London.

The second is a charity bike ride which will see 19 teams of seven cyclists riding from RAF Scampton in Lincolnshire to the Möhne Dam in Germany from 16th to 20th May 2018.

Please donate generously to help support the April Fools Club's efforts in aid of the RAF Benevolent Fund.
