Air Cadets from 2500 (St Neots) Squadron welcomed Mrs. Chris Hatton (Waitrose Community Matters) to the squadron parade night.
Mrs. Hatton presented the squadron with a cheque for £340 after taking part in the Community Green Token scheme that Waitrose runs to benefit local organizations.
The much appreciated funds will be put towards equipment for the cadets to participate in the Duke of Edinburgh awards and also new radio communications kit.
The St. Neots Squadron has recently had several members qualify for the Bronze level of the award and cadets are now being put forward for Silver level activities. In addition to this, many of the cadets have just completed a week long exercise training on a military camp with such activities as abseiling, navigation, orienteering, raft building, drill and a night exercise in the field.
The Squadron was also lucky enough to attend a bag packing morning at Waitrose where an additional £270 was also raised. The Squadron would like to pass on their thanks to Waitrose for their support and also thank the public for generosity.
