Article posted: Feb 21, 2013 by Sqn Ldr Mayoh-Smith

On Tuesday 12th February seven cadets from 422 (Corby) Squadron Royal Air Force Air Cadets went to RAF College Cranwell alongside 400 other cadets to help Blue Peter presenter Helen Skeleton with her latest Red Nose Day challenge.

The cadets braved the cold and rain to assist Helen in various tasks and also hold up red and black umbrellas to form the initials “RND” on the Orange outside College Hall Officers’ Mess, while Helen was part of the prestigious Red Arrow Team performing a fly past over the initials as part of her “Magnificent 7 Challenge” which she must complete in 7 weeks

Cadet Kirsty Mitchell said “I really enjoyed myself even though it was a cold day. It was a good experience and I met cadets from around the Corps. Overall it was a great day”.
