Story

🌟 Raffle of a lifetime! 🌟

🎁 Win a piece of history: A limited edition Bremont Dambuster watch! 🎁

Celebrate this season of giving by participating in the RAF Benevolent Fund Christmas raffle! We're thrilled to present an exclusive opportunity for you to own a piece of RAF history — the Limited Edition Bremont Dambuster watch, crafted to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the Lancaster Bomber's historic service in 1942 and the daring Dambusters Raid in 1943.

Thank you to Bremont for donating this rare watch to the RAF Benevolent Fund in aid of the RAF family so that when the hour of need strikes, we will be there to support them as we have done for over 100 years.

🛩️ About the prize!🛩️

This remarkable 42mm chrono timepiece pays homage to the military watches of the 1940s. It's not just a watch; it's a symbol of courage and a tangible connection to one of the most iconic aircraft of the Second World War.

💰 Tickets!💰

For just £20 per ticket, you could be the proud owner of this unique timepiece and contribute to a great cause simultaneously. Your generosity will make a meaningful impact on our charity's mission.

If you haven't heard from us within 24 hours...once you have made a donation for your ticket(s) via JustGiving - please forward your confirmation e-mail to charlene.hughes@rafbf.org.uk to receive your raffle ticket number.

Please remember if you are buying a ticket(s) - do not press the gift aid button as we are unable to claim gift aid on raffle tickets. However if you are making a subsequent donation alongside the ticket, we will be able to claim Gift Aid on that donation. For example - if I bought 1 ticket for £20 and made a donation of £25 on JustGiving, the RAF Benevolent Fund would be able to claim gift aid on the £5.

📅 Raffle period📅

Mark your calendars! The raffle kicks off on the 1st of December and runs until the 13th of December. The draw will take place on the 14th of December, just in time for the winner to receive this extraordinary piece of history for Christmas!

🎉 Additional perk 🎉

As if winning this rare watch isn't exciting enough, the lucky winner will also have the exclusive opportunity for a tour of the esteemed Bremont facilities, gaining insights into the craftsmanship and dedication behind these incredible timepieces.
