Air Cadets from the 1211 (Swadlincote) Squadron ATC spent last weekend successfully raising funds towards their activities by bag-packing for customers at the Swadlincote branch of Sainsbury’s.

Over two days, twenty Cadets raised over £2,000. A £250 donation was also made by the Sainsbury’s branch staff.

Squadron Commander, Flight Lieutenant Alyn Thompson, summarised: “Most of our fundraising activities are conducted with other charities borne in mind. It is rare that we will raise funds solely for ourselves, and we thank the Swadlincote branch of Sainsbury’s for having us over the weekend and for their kind generosity. Funds raised will go towards Air Cadet activities to be enjoyed within the next year, including camping, rock climbing, canoeing and sports.”
