Spalding Air Cadets Top Off a Summer of Success by Giving Away £4,500!

Spalding Air Cadets (1406 Squadron) have had summer of brilliant successes and they topped it all by giving away £4500 to charity.

Earlier in the year the Spalding Guardian reported the Cadets tow of a Red Arrows Jet Training aircraft for 1.6 kilometres along the runway at RAF Scampton.  The idea was not to replace the RAF’s tow tractors but to raise money for charity.

Now the Cadets of 1406 Squadron have made good their pledges to The Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance, The Royal Air Force Association and Newark Air Museum.  Representatives from the three charities attended a special evening at the squadron’s HQ in Spalding and each received a cheque for £1,343.70p an total of £4031.10p.

Only 30 of the squadron’s 100 plus cadets raised the money after their day out being entertained by the Red Arrows.  Each cadet received a media disc of pictures and a news video of the day and a souvenir brochure of the Red Arrows.

If this was not enough the Squadron gave another £500 pounds to RAFA.
