During the presentation, Councillor Hosker praised media articles which had been published in the Long Eaton Advertiser detailing many recent squadron activities and which had drawn his attention to the cadets this year.
“Every year I am happy to share a £4,000 grant between 10 of the borough’s youth organisations and charities, having read about the causes recently supported by 2195 Squadron and their activities, I decided to find out more and I can quite honestly say that this is the most well deserved cheque that I have presented to date” commented Councillor Hosker.
