On Saturday the 28th of June, some of 1461 cadets took part in fund raising money for the charity: Help For Heros, through bag packing at Asda Fosse Park in Leicester. For their hard work they raised a total of £1500, in which £1000 goes to Help For Heros and £500 is going to the Squadron to fund for a mini bus. It was a great effort by all involved, especially as the majority of the cadets had been partaking in another activity earlier in the day.
Cpl Hollie Woodford said that “it is great to get 1461 out there and known by doing these fundraising activities and it is even better to know that the money is also going to a worthwhile cause.”
1461 will be bag-packing again on the 25th and 26th July.
