RFDS Gala Dinner 2014

Over £100,000 raised at the Royal Flying
Doctor Service Gala Dinner 2014

Support the Royal Flying Doctor Service in Australia and enjoy a memorable evening at the Imperial War Museum London.

Everyone who has lived in or visited Australia appreciates the vast distances and logistical challenges the RFDS faces every day of every year.
We know the RFDS’s work is vital for people, young and old, who live in the outback, on stations and in remote Aboriginal communities.
From the other side of the earth, we want to help this important work to continue – and we can!
