Last weekend, Long Eaton Air Cadets did their final event for 2015, devoting their time and effort to packing bags at Morrison’s in Derby.
This year, the money raised will be put towards the squadron’s own flight simulator, which will allow cadets to receive flying experiences and further expand to what 2195 (Long Eaton) Squadron ATC can already offer.

At 9am on Saturday morning, the cadets met at the entrance to the superstore and packed until 2pm, raising a total of £297 on the first day. 10am on Sunday saw the arrival of the cadets once again, who this time raised £712.

Cadet Olivia Olsson said “By no means is this a highlight of the cadet calendar, however, I know it’s worth giving up some of my Christmas holiday for. I can’t wait to try out the flight simulator!”
