Nearly £800 was raised for the RAF Benevolent Fund by a raffle organised by Anton and the team of Black’s Menswear in Mill Street, Stafford.

The unique chair was created by Stafford designer Karen Hawkins. She has designed other military chairs and her first one went viral on Facebook with more than 50,000 likes.

Winner of the chair was Stafford NHS worker Barbara Crook whose husband Ian was stationed at RAF Stafford and her son is still in the RAF.
