In addition, the funds raised through Trader Winston's help support MSA's wide philanthropic endeavors- including scholarships and donation requests.

Airman's Attic

The Airman’s Attic is a shop of sorts, but perhaps not a kind you’re familiar with if you haven’t been around military life for long. We are similar to a thrift store, collecting gently used items and offering them in our shop. However, this is where the similarities start to differ. The RAF Mildenhall Airman’s Attic offers all items for free to those with base access and valid IDs, focusing especially on our newer airmen and their families. This community is built on volunteers, helping those who need a little extra help when life gets in the way.
