MP supports RAFA fundraising bid for Forces families

Sefton Central MP Bill Esterson is backing an RAF campaign encouraging people to “give – as they gave”.

Mr Esterson met up with charity collector John Hegan in Maghull during Battle of Britain (Wings) Week, part of the RAF Association’s Wings Appeal.

The Wings Appeal is the RAF Association’s fundraising campaign that runs throughout the year.

It helps raise the vital funds needed to support serving and former RAF personnel and their families, whenever they are in need.

Mr Esterson said: “The RAFA do an incredible job supporting current and former servicemen and women. The work they do includes things like helping injured airmen get back on their feet, supporting Forces families when a parent is overseas and giving veterans a shoulder to lean on.

“It is a fantastic charity that I’m proud to support and well done to John for continuing to give his time to fundraise.”
