South Ayrshire Council has been shortlisted in the RAF Benevolent Fund Awards 2024. 

The Fund's annual awards ceremony is an important opportunity for the charity to acknowledge, celebrate and thank its supporters.

The local authority has been shortlisted in the Outstanding Support from an Organisation or Group category, alongside International Bomber Command Centre and The Beaujolais Run. 

Actor and fund supporter Alistair Petrie will be hosting the awards for the second year on Thursday, April 25.

He said: "It is a pleasure to be hosting the RAF Benevolent Fund Awards once more to acknowledge and celebrate those who went above and beyond in supporting the Fund in 2023.

"As a member of the RAF family, I fully appreciate how important the Fund’s work is for serving personnel, veterans and their families, which is only made possible thanks to the Fund’s supporters. So, a huge thank you!"

Air Vice-Marshal Chris Elliot, Controller at the RAF Benevolent Fund, said: "Our annual awards ceremony is an important event in our calendar, and one we look forward to every year.

"The event presents the opportunity for the RAF Family to come together and celebrate the efforts of our supporters and commitment to our cause.

"We would be unable to carry out our life-changing work without the significant support from these dedicated individuals, groups, organisations and RAF Stations, so I’d like to extend my thanks and congratulations to every one of this year’s nominees."
