Newmarket Charitable Foundation recently granted £1,620 to Newmarket Air Cadets. The donation, made by Trustee, James Crowhurst, will be used by the group to expand their expedition equipment and kit.
For those interested in joining and becoming an Air Cadet you must be 13 years old, or 12 years old if you’re already in year 8. Air Cadets offers a wide range of fun and challenging activities, which are perfect for young people who are keen to have a go! Newmarket Air Cadets can be found on Rayes Lane and meet on Monday and Wednesdays.
Flt Lt Peter Norton RAFAC said: “We are delighted by the generous donation from the Newmarket Charitable Foundation. The Air Cadets provide a wide range of training, challenging and fun activities as well as being an organisation for young people with military links, giving us all high standards to maintain, such as taking pride in our uniform and appearance as well as being good citizens and self-disciplined. This grant will allow us to purchase camping/expedition equipment and kit to support our Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme programme and other camping events – providing cadets with additional skills, such as teamwork and leadership to become more rounded and confident adults.”
