On Saturday 30th March, cadets from 422 (Corby) Squadron Royal Air Force Air Cadets gathered at Asda for a spot of bag packing in order to raise funds for their squadron.

The cadets took post at the end of tills, bags at the ready, trying to remember the rules their parents had taught them about not cracking the eggs and making sure the bread does not get squashed.

Members of the public and Asda staff told the Squadron Adult Staff what a joy it was to see such polite young teenagers giving up their time during the Easter Bank Holiday weekend. One woman approached FS (ATC) Broxton after being helped by one of the cadets and told him “It was a joy to see such smart and polite young people serving the public in such a proud manner”.

Throughout the day, the cadets spoke to the public and answered questions about the Royal Air Force Air Cadets and what they have done while in the cadets, and their plans for the future and if it involved the Royal Air Force.

Over their time at Asda the cadets at 422 (Corby) Squadron raised £520 for the squadron funds.
