Henley Army Cadet Force continued with their tradition of honouring Armed forces day by collecting money for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.
A total of £1,000.24 was collected for the Poppy Appeal.
John Green, Chairman for The Henley Branch Royal British Legion congratulated all the Army Cadets who participated on the collection, noting that their collection makes a huge difference.
2Lt Fearn said “Our Army Cadets should be extremely proud of the amount raised today, their parents should also be proud that their son or daughter spent their weekend making a real difference. The Army Cadets makes young people into better citizens, and watching them grow the way they have is why I volunteer in Henley! The Army Cadets really does provide something other organisations cannot match.”
Whilst the Army Cadet Force work hard for their community, the cadets are also challenged in other activities they would not normally do.
This weekend the cadets were at Their Weekend Training Centre honing their military skills and trying other challenging activities such as Rock Climbing and Scuba Diving.
The Army Cadet Force is a national youth organisation sponsored and supported by the Ministry of Defence for 12 to 18 year olds, Army Cadets provides a challenging and varied syllabus based on military themes. Henley Army Cadet Force parade every Wednesday from 1900 to 2130 at The Old TA Centre on Friday Street and are currently looking for new Cadets and Adult Volunteers, feel free to come along and experience something new.
