209 Sqn and the Bag Pack at the End of the World

Article posted: Jan 03, 2013 by Sqn Ldr Wilson

On 21st December 2012 the world didn’t end. However the school term did and the civilian committee of 209 (West Bridgford) Sqn thought it would be a good time to help the Christmas Shoppers at the Wilford branch of Morrisons and raise funds for the Sqn.

Once Cadets had finished school got home, changed uniforms and arrived at Morrisons they got stuck into a busy Friday afternoons shopping, made busier by the proximity of Christmas

The Chair of the civilian committee, Chris McManus said “Thanks to Pam Boughan for arranging the bag pack, Flt Lt Richards for ensuring we had packers, Sgt ATC Vincett and Flying Officer Waring for supporting through the day, and the Cadets FS Linley, Sgt Taylor, Cpls Bramley, Kay and Mendis, and Cdts Boughan, Kirk and McManus for being there and raising the money. A good day’s work and another £360 in the bank.”
