2418 Sqn Arnold Carnival 2013

Article posted: Jul 04, 2013 by Sqn Ldr Wilson

On the 15th and 16th of June 14 cadets, Flt Lt Bates and Flight Sergeant Kitchingman went down to Arnold Carnival to raise funds for the squadron. A total of £263.90 was raised on the tombola stall.

Both days started very slowly, but after lunch on both days the sun came out, and more and more people came and had a go on the stall.

On the Sunday cadets made t-shirts with our Padre to promote the squadron and to attract people to the stall.
All cadets stayed enthusiastic and had a good time raising funds for the squadron, whilst meeting and talking to the public and giving out stickers and sweets to children who had taken part in the tombola.

By 5 o’clock on both days the cadets had packed away and went home for a well deserved rest after 8 hours work on the stall.
It was an enjoyable weekend and we look forward to next year.
