Bag Pack Fundraising

Article posted: Feb 24, 2009 by Sqn Ldr Pass

Air Cadets from 209 (West Bridgford) Squadron have raised a staggering £631 bag packing at Morrisons.

A dozen Air Cadets helped Morrisons cutomers on Saturday packing everything from a few items to the weekly shop. Many customers chatted with the Cadets about their own time in the Cadets or services and a few of the staff were able to renew acquaintances with friends they hadn’t seen for some time.

Pam Bradley, Chairman of the Sqn’s Civilian Committee said, “Thanks to the wonderful generosity of the people of Clifton the sum raised will greatly benefit the Cadets.”

The money raised will go towards subsidising ATC activites and trips, including a trip at Easter to the American Air Force Base at RAF Lakenheath.
