An insurance broker held a charity day to raise funds for the Royal Air Forces Association.

Willis, based in Ipswich, hosted a dress-down day on Friday with all 1,300 staff wearing what they wanted in return for a donation.

The day kicked off with RAF veterans raising the RAFA flag on the building’s roof garden.

There was also RAFA merchandise on sale, cadets from 188 (Ipswich) Sqn, ATC collecting donations, a raffle and a fastest lap challenge on a PlayStation 3 console.

RAFA was nominated for the fundraiser by Carl Baker, who works in the compliance department, as his son has been in 188 Ipswich ATC since he was 13 where he has been taking part in flying, sports and target shooting.
