A Joining of Forces

Friday night saw 51 Orton Squadron, join forces with 115 (Peterborough) Air Cadets and representatives from the Army Cadets and Sea Cadets from across Peterborough. This annual joining of forces was in support of the Mayor’s Annual Charity Ball, which this year, was held at the Holiday Inn, Thorpe Wood.

All of the cadets performed a guard of honour through the entrance hallway into the Buckingham Suite, for the Mayor and his party of dignitaries and also for each of his guests.

The evening was designed with elegance in mind, and the dress code was black tie. Cadet Amy Whitehead commented “The ladies attending the evening, looked the picture of elegance. I am pleased to be just a small part of such an important event.”

A large part of this event was to raise funds, by means of an auction, to help the Mayor’s chosen Charities which are, The Rudolph Fund and Supporters of Combat Stress, both very deserving charities.

All the cadets from 51 (Orton) Squadron, would like to thank the Mayor personally for providing such a lovely spread of food prior to their departure.
