As part of the Remembrance Weekend 14 Air Cadets from 209 (West Bridgford) Sqn held a Poppy collection on Central Avenue, West Bridgford.

It was a typically bracing November morning but that didn’t stop the people of West Bridgford generously donating money. Several people who had already given and were wearing poppies thanked the Cadets for the efforts they were making.

The Chair of the West Bridgford Royal British Legion Branch, Charlie Harris said, “I’ve been collecting in West Bridgford for 49 years and 209 Sqn has been with us every year. Last year with 209s help the Branch raised over £17000.”
