The expedition is funded largely through personal contributions and generous sponsorship. Therefore we have chosen to support the following three charities through fundraising: Royal Air Forces Association (RAFA); Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund (RAFBF) and Save the Children. Please visit if you wish to support us in sponsoring these worthwhile charities.

RAFA is committed to providing confidential, professional and fair services to members of the wider RAF family from the youngest recruit to the oldest veteran and their families.




The RAF Benevolent Fund is the RAF’s leading welfare charity with a proud tradition of looking after its own. They are there for all serving and former members of the RAF as well as their partners and dependent children.



Save the Children promotes children’s rights, provides relief and helps support children in developing countries. We are visiting and overflying a number of countries that Save the Children are actively working in on our route from Great Britain to New Zealand.
