Registered Charity No.1101767


Following the appointment of former Chief of the Air Staff, Air Chief Marshal Sir Michael Graydon GCB, CBE as its President, the Royal Air Force Music Charitable Trust was established by Malcolm Goodman MBE on 1 December 2003 and registered by the Charity Commission on 27 January 2004. Then a serving member of the Band of the RAF Regiment, Sergeant Goodman was also Public Relations and Marketing Manager for the RAF Music Services. In his role as Honorary Administrator, from the charity’s home in Newark he is curently supported by two other volunteer trustees, Warrant Officer (Ret.) Trevor McDonald and Sergeant (Ret.) John Baigent. As former RAF musicians, all three trustees are also veterans of the First Gulf War, having served together on active service at Field Hospitals in Saudi Arabia during the 1991 conflict.

With its charitable objects to raise welfare funds through the performance of live music, the charity primarily organises Royal Air Force fund raising concerts in locations where the bands might otherwise not be able to perform. Through these concerts and the sale of RAF Music CDs and merchandise, the charity raises funds from which donations are also made to various RAF and other Service charities. However, as RAF musicians routinely undertake deployments in support of H M Forces around the world, the charity also provides welfare support to personnel whilst deployed on ‘out of area’ operations.
