All winnings are donated to the Fund.Andy Weller Managing Director of Prolinx explains: “Our three year partnership with the RAFBF has been hugely rewarding, and we have been able to see and hear how our financial support has translated into the delivery of much needed welfare services to both the serving and retired RAF community. Meeting some of the Fund’s beneficiaries at first hand has been a humbling experience at times. For everyone at Prolinx that is really what it’s all about.” Weller explained: “In reviewing our charitable support my co–Director Gary Styles and I had no hesitation in wishing to remain loyal to the Benevolent Fund. Our partnership is meaningful and we enjoy working with their highly professional team… We hope to make the total donation amount to £100k in 2013 and if we continue to be successful then we will seek to do more of the same year on year.”www.rafbf.org About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
