11.01 mile walk and a little surprise

Article posted: Feb 25, 2016 by Flt Lt Rayson-Flynn

The year of 2016 is a very important year for Air Cadets as it’s the 75th anniversary. It is also the 75th anniversary of 1101 Squadron making it an even more important year for the cadets within 1101.

We have plenty of plans through the year start off with an 11.01 mile walk starting at Hills & Dales ending at the 1101 squadron. The cadets are looked forward to it and although they knew they would end it tired they would have loved it. 16 cadets and 3 staff took part.

One cadet (Cadet Sergeant Harrison) took it upon himself to do it as a charitable walk raising a jaw dropping £148. No one knew he was doing this, so it came as a very pleasant surprise when he attended the next parade night with a smile and a box full of money raised by family and friends. This small act of kindness will bring a large amount of happiness towards our Squadron buying new equipment or saving up to something larger. Every Cadet wants to say thank you to Cadet Sergeant Harrison.
