Air Cadets from 2461 (Sawston) Squadron have spent the day raising vital funds for the Squadron with a day of bag packing.
The cadets were joined by members of staff, the civilian committee and parents for the event at Waitrose in Trumpington, Cambridge to help the Christmas shoppers pack their shopping. The aim being to raise vital funds to cover the Squadron’s operating cost in 2013. The day also gave the Squadron an excellent opportunity to promote the Air Cadet Organisation in the local area and potentially gain new recruits.
At the end of the day the cadets were delighted to discover they had raised a massive £1369.86 for the Squadron.
Cadet Jack Hawkins said “I really enjoyed helping the Squadron raise funds for next year. We got to meet lots of people who were really interested in the work and activities we do at the Squadron. ”
Flying Officer Chris Cox added “The day was a total success for the Squadron, all those involved did a fantastic job. The amount that was raised will help the Squadron continue to develop and grow throughout 2013 and ensure the light blue footprint remains visible in the Sawston and Cambridge area.”
Civilian Committee Chairman Kevin Cuffley said “We would like to thank all the staff at Waitrose for their help and support during the event.”
