Teenage cadets help Wembley shoppers in fundraising mission
Youths pack bags to raise money for their unit
Shoppers were given a helping hand over the weekend by a group of kind-hearted teenagers in a fundraising mission.
The youths from Wembley’s Army Cadets lined the checkouts at Asda supermarket in Forty Lane, Wembley, to raise �2,547 for their unit and their annual camp.
The 30 cadets and their leaders from 205 Wembley ACF (Para) took part in the event masterminded by probationary instructor Claire Miller who packed bags with her brother Bob.
She said: “We are doing this partly as our contribution to the community, to make people aware of what’s great about the cadet world, and also to raise funds for our annual camp in Norfolk. The cadets have worked so hard and made us very proud of them”.
