Royal Air Force Charitable Trust
Many pre-war cars were used during the war and contributed significantly to our victory, and many enthusiasts are now driving cars that were owned in the war by those who never returned, and whose sacrifice paid for the freedoms we all enjoy today. To repay just a small part of our debt, the RAF Charitable Trust has been nominated as the official charity of Pre-War Prescott and a donation will be made to the Trust at the end of the day.
The Royal Air Force Charitable Trust (RAF CT) came into being in January 2005, being established as the latest addition to the Royal Air Force’s family of charities. Since then, the RAF CT has been providing financial support to a wide variety of projects and initiatives.
At the heart of the Trust is its commitment to young people, to initiate and develop within them an enthusiasm for aviation in all its guises. In doing so, the Trust aims to inspire the next generation of aerospace professionals, whether engineers, pilots or ground crew. To this end, the RAF CT has forged strong links with the Air Cadet organisation, supporting activities that directly enrich the young cadets’ training experience.
These have included funding flying scholarships, a trophy for Flying Excellence and the purchase of equipment for ATC training. RAF CT has also agreed to become a main sponsor of Air Cadet magazine and is providing bursaries, through the Maritime Air Trust, to support AT Cadets through their education at college or university.
