The Royal Air Force Music Charitable Trust was established in December 2003 by Malcolm Goodman (former PR and Marketing Manager for the RAF Music Services and RAF Musician at Royal Air Force Cranwell).
Under its President, Air Chief Marshal Sir Michael Graydon GCB CBE (former Chief of the Air Staff), the charitable trust was subsequently registered as a service charity with the Charity Commission in January 2004.
The Charity is administered by its Board of Trustees to promote welfare funding through the performance of live music by Royal Air Force musicians, and routinely provides welfare donations to other service charities, whilst offering its support towards the development of other charity fundraising concerts both in the UK and overseas.
The Charity also provides welfare support for Royal Air Force Musicians who undertake 'Out of Area' deployments in Afghanistan and other operational theatres.
The Board of Trustees...
In accordance with its governing document and the Charities Act 1993, the Royal Air Force Music Charitable Trust is administered by a Board of Trustees who meet regularly throughout the year at Headquarters Music Services, Royal Air Force Northolt and RAF Cranwell.
To ensure a wide and open debate on all development plans, the Board of Trustees also invites representatives from the established Bands of the Royal Air Force along with independent advisors to attend committee meetings whenever possible.
