On Saturday the 2nd, and Sunday 3rd November cadets from 2504 (Archbishop Grimshaw) squadron took the opportunity to fundraise at Melbicks Garden and Leisure, Coleshill. We were helping busy customers pack their shopping and it turned out to be quite enjoyable thanks to the welcoming and sociable check out staff.
Positive feedback from the public reinforced cadets’ willingness to take part in further fundraising activities as it became clear that the public truly supported the cause. Many of the cadets from 2504 Squadron thoroughly enjoyed helping out the community and the response can be said to be a reward within itself.
Over the course of the weekend, the cadets managed to raise a grand total of £259.40 which will help towards cadet’s ideas on making their experience at the ATC more enjoyable than it already is.
Many thanks to all the cadets who helped out as well as the staff from Melbicks, who welcomed the bag packers.
The Officer Commanding of 2504(Archbishop Grimshaw) Squadron, Flt Lt Mohammed Aftab RAFVR(T) said that “This was a good turn out by all the cadets and staff who attended and also this was very much appreciated by all customers and staff and Melbicks Garden and Leisure, A big Thank you to all”.
