Thanks to our Commanding Officer.
51 (Orton) Squadron Air Cadets met with the general public on Saturday, whilst completing their Annual bag Pack at Morrison's Lincoln Road.
The superstore on Lincoln Road has been supporting our organisation for many years, and this year was no different. Making each of the cadets feel welcome, we would like to thank the management and the staff for their support and friendliness. Not forgetting the shoppers, who deserve our biggest thanks as they entrust their purchases into our cadet's hands, and also donate so generously.
Support came from various people on this visit, not least, our own Commanding Officer who rolled up his sleeves and started packing bags as well. It was great to have so many of our new members at the event, and each cadet was praised in one form or another by either shoppers or till staff, and yes that did include our CO, who received praise from the customers.
The squadron on this outing was raising money to keep their own mini bus on the road, which is no mean task, but also to start raising money towards the purchase of much needed Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme equipment. This will help not only our existing member's but also many future cadets who we hope will come and join our friendly team.
