THE Costa Blanca Branch of the Royal Air Forces Association is based in Torrevieja.
In Spain, two other branches exist – the North Costa Blanca Branch in Denia and the Costa Del Sol Branch in Benalmadena.
The Costa Blanca Branch is a registered charity in Spain whose main aim is the welfare of ex-RAF personnel and their dependents, being members of the RAFA or not.
To fund welfare activities, the Costa Blanca Branch participates in fundraising events across the Costa Blanca, including social events and raffles.
RAFA has over 63,500 members worldwide, all of whom contribute to fundraising, enabling help to be given to over 40,000 ex-RAF personnel and their dependents.
If you would like to join in or to re-activate your membership, get in touch with the Chairman on 692 505 916 / firstname.lastname@example.org or for welfare issues get in touch with the Honorary Welfare Officer on 615 048 892 / email@example.com.
Monthly meetings are held at Bar El Paraiso, Urb. Jardin del Mar (close to Carrefour), Torrevieja on the Thursday Tuesday of each month from 2.30pm.
Many members will arrive early to the meetings and enjoy lunch in the restaurant.
