Last week saw Flying Officer Lawrence Buckingham and Cadet Flight Sergeant Nathan Moffatt take a visit to the Erewash Town Hall for a special presentation to the squadron.
Councillor Kewal Athewal, the previous Mayor of the Borough of Erewash, selected Long Eaton Air Cadets as one of a select few of organizations to benefit from “The Mayor’s Charity” .
They were presented with a cheque for the squadron addressed to the “Mayors Chosen Charities”, which Long Eaton Air Cadets is very grateful for. This was one of many donations, totalling £5000 overall.
This money will go towards the squadron to benefit the cadets by funding new equipment and giving them many opportunities to “get stuck in” to what was not necessarily available prior to the kind donation.
Long Eaton Air Cadets would like to send a massive thank you to Kewal Athewal for choosing the squadron to receive a share of the money.
