Every October, thousands of school children across the UK get dressed up in red, white & blue in support of the men and women of the Armed Forces.
Red, White & 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.
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!
Money raised will be split between the three long-established charities that all have close ties with our Armed Forces.
