Cadets bag-packing success

Cadets from 2262 (Bexhill) squadron were out in force at Tesco supermarket at Ravenside during the Easter holidays.

Over a period of 16 hours bag-packing they raised 1,700.

Flight Lieutenant Andy Izzard, Officer Commanding 2262 Squadron, said that the idea of the local bag-pack was not only to raise money towards training equipment but also to raise awareness of the Air Cadets themselves.

He said: "We have had some really good feedback from the customers of the store and I hope that we will get some new recruits - both cadets and adult staff. Tesco store manager Emily Knowler made sure the cadets were treated really well during their stint there."

Chairman of the Civilian Committee Les Hughes thanked the store manager and her team for their "excellent" support, and he and the squadron thanked customers for their generosity.

Bexhill Squadron are currently seeking to recruit cadets who are over 13 and also volunteer adult staff.
