A total of £2,318.95 has been raised this year for the Battle of Britain Wings Appeal.

It came after branch members of the Royal Air Forces Association and Air Cadets from 301 Squadron (Bury St Edmunds) carried out a collection in the town.

Ernie Broom, the Battle of Britain Wings Appeal organisers for Bury and Haverhill, paid thanks to the genorosity of the “wonderful” people who donated.

He said: “Supporting ex-serving member of the RAF is just one part of our work. We also assist serving personal as well as dependant families.

“From survivors of the Second World War to the men and women in service today all can turn to the RAF Assocation when in need of welfare support.
