The Squadron is partially funded by the RAF, but we have to raise funds for essential equipment and the Sqn vehicles which are not funded. Without money we would be unable to have the equipment required to give the Cadets safe and challenging activities. The unit therefore has to find ways of raising money to meet these needs. The Sqn decamped to Chingford Sainsburys who very kindly allowed us to pack peoples bags, hoping for a small donation, on Saturday 16 January between 0900 and 1800. The Staff and Cadets did shifts of 3 hours each, and the total amount collected for was over £2000, an excellent reward for all the hard work! However this was also an event where the cadets put themselves out to help others and we will be donating a portion of the funds raised to Haven House Childrens Charity and Woodford Guide Dogs for the Blind.
