Jubilee Concert 2003

March 2003 – Royal Air Force Squadronaires
The Squadronaires Charity Concert on Saturday 22 March 2003 at Ditton Community Centre Aylesford was a resounding success. It was arranged by the Branch to celebrate the RAF Association`s Diamond Jubilee and raise funds.

The concert attracted a sell-out audience of 400 and raised £2,700 for Battle of Britain Wings Appeal. A raffle and programme selling, by the branch`s Adopted 2374(Ditton)Sqn ATC, contributed £470 to the total raised.
