This weekend a number of Berwick cadets assisted the Civic Party in fundraising for the Mayor’s Charities; The Alzheimers Society and Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research.
The cadets have worked closely with the Civic Parties of the last three years and this bond gets stronger every year. In her closing speech of the Christmas Switch-On ceremony the Mayor, Cllr Isobel Hunter, gave praise to the cadets for their continued hard work within the community.
Detachment Commander, 2Lt Jerdan, reported many positive comments about the work ethics, manners and attitudes of the cadets, and said, “We had a great afternoon supporting two very worthy charities, and as always, the cadets were a credit to their parents, their town and to Northumbria ACF"
