Great British Sunday Lunch

The Great British Sunday Lunch is a new initiative organised by the RAF Benevolent Fund.

The idea is to encourage people to host a Great British Sunday lunch on 13th September and invite family and friends to join gbsl_airfield_604_0them to raise money for the RAF Benevolent Fund. The options are endless! You can host a simple roast at your home, or a BBQ in your garden? How about booking a local hall or asking a local organisation to help you out? Or a local pub/hotel or on your local RAF station. It is all about recognising and remembering the bravery and sacrifices made by ‘The Few’ in the Battle of Britain 75 years ago. You can sign up for a kit from the Benevolent Fund, which includes some bunting, invitations and placecards, as well as some game ideas to help raise a few pounds.

gbslFor our Great British Sunday Lunch, Team RAFBF Lossiemouth will be holding a BBQ at the Beach Bar in Lossiemouth on 23rd August, 12pm-5pm. We are being sponsored by MacLemans of Speyside Butchers in Lossiemouth, who will be supplying all our meat, and the Fleming family who own the Beach Bar.

Tickets are £5 a head with U12’s going free. There will also be a bouncy castle and free kids’ drinks.

Tickets can be purchased at:
Buccanneer Service Station, Elgin
MacLeman’s Butcher, Lossiemouth
Beach Bar, Lossiemouth
and via Karen on 07775 737647

To find out more on hosting your own Great British Sunday Lunch, or if you are interested in volunteering to help promote the event, please visit the RAF Benevolent Fund’s website.

RAF Way Round: Andy Reed – “The Well-Seasoned Biker”

On the 1st September, four personnel from RAF Lossiemouth will begin their epic, 3,000 mile journey around 39 MOD bases across the UK, finishing just seven days later at the Highland Military Tattoo. They hope to raise £10,000 for the RAF Benevolent Fund, the RAF’s leading welfare charity. If you would like to join them on their adventure around the UK, please visit their Facebook Events page.

Andy Reed was introduced to the team by FS Mark Ratcliffe and was soon appreciated for his wealth of biking knowledge.  Here Andy tells us a bit more about himself and the challenge.

2014-08-25 17.01.09My name is Andy Reed and I am a fitter for Turner Estate Solutions at RAF Lossiemouth.  I was in the RAF for 27 1/2 years as a General Technician Workshop and left as a Chief Tech just over two years ago.

I have been biking for longer than I care to remember (34 years in October). Had a great time riding bikes in the RAF, started scrambling then changed to short-circuit track racing and finished up as a trials rider. It was often andyremarked that I must have been sponsored by Ginsters,  not that I can work out why.  I still ride every day and can’t imagine a day with out a motorbike and will only give up when I can’t pick them up anymore.

I am doing the challenge to raise money for what I consider to be a very worthwhile cause and to put something back into a Service that has given me so much over the years and continues to do so.

2014-06-01 11.40.09I am most looking forward to seeing the MGR at Lossiemouth on the morning we finish, and there is no downside to being on the road on a motorbike for a whole week with 3 great guys for company  (not forgetting the back up crew)

Royal British Legion Scotland Riders Branch

On a bright and breezy morning in May, RAF Lossiemouth looked more like the set of a biker film than a frontline tornado base as 20 riders and their bikes revved into the base to present a £1,0101 cheque to Station Commander, Group Captain Ian Gale.
