Sandy cadets support Wings Appeal

Air Cadets from 22 (Sandy) Squadron recently raised £137.44 for the Royal Air Force Association’s Wings Appeal, collecting in Sandy Town Centre on Saturday 17th September.

Sandy Air Cadets help in raising funds for the RAF Association each year, which uses the funds to support serving and former RAF personnel and their families. This includes jointly funding three care homes with the RAF Benevolent fund, as well as many other initiatives.

This year part of the funds raised will go towards the “Miles for Minutes” campaign. This campaign was set up so that RAF personnel serving in Afghanistan, which are limited to 15 minute per month to call their families back home, to receive extra minutes so they can call home more often.

Flight Lieutenant Geoff Matthews said “The cadets have done really well, and for such a good cause. The RAF Association do a brilliant job at helping current and former RAF personnel, so any money they receive will certainly be put to good use.”.

Many thanks to all the members of the public who showed their support to the RAF Association wings appeal.
