RAF Brize Norton has been named station of the year by the RAF Benevolent Fund after raising more than £60,000 for the charity in 2013.

The station’s fundraising activities included selling limited-edition prints of the Hercules C-130K aircraft before its retirement in October and participation in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge rowing race.
