Be part of Red, White & Blue Day on 6th October 2017

Red, White & Blue Day is being run jointly by ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, The RAF Benevolent Fund and The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity. Each of these three charities is responsible for the welfare of soldiers, sailors and airmen and their families.

Once again we are taking the Red, White & Blue Day to every school in the UK, as well as military schools based overseas. Pupils can simply donate £1 and dress up in Red, White and Blue, or hold cake sales, sponsored events, or they might have weird or wonderful fundraising ideas of their own!

The money will be split between the three long-established charities which all have close ties with our Armed Forces.

Red, White & Blue Day – Friday 6th October 2017

Every October, thousands of school children across the UK get dressed up in red, white and blue in support of the men and women of the Armed Forces. Red, White and Blue Day is a national fundraising campaign that raises money in support of ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund, and The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity.

For 2017 the day will be celebrating women in the forces, commemorating the 100th birthday of the Women's Royal Naval Service (WRNS) and exploring all the roles women have taken up when serving their country.
