Valu­able role of cadets in our work

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION -

MAY I, through your col­umns, thank all those who at­tended the re­cent Royal Air Force in Con­cert per­for­mance at Wy­combe Swan, which cel­e­brated the 50th dis­play sea­son of the world-renowned Royal Air Force aer­o­batic dis­play team, the Red Ar­rows.

The evening was a great suc­cess and helped support the im­por­tant work of the Royal Air Force Char­i­ta­ble Trust.

I would also like to thank air cadets from 322 (High Wy­combe) Squadron, whose valu­able par­tic­i­pa­tion on the night re­flected both the spirit and ded­i­ca­tion of the Air Cadet Or­gan­i­sa­tion.

The RAF Char­i­ta­ble Trust is the youngest of the RAF’s fam­ily of char­i­ties, hav­ing been set up in 2005. Its mis­sion is to pro­mote the Royal Air Force, to support its peo­ple now and into the fu­ture, and to en­cour­age air-mind­ed­ness and the avi­a­tion­re­lated ed­u­ca­tion of youth.

This gives us very wide scope to do great work to help for­mer and serv­ing mem­bers of the RAF, as well as avi­a­tion-ori­en­tated youth or­gan­i­sa­tions.

We very much look for­ward to re­turn­ing to High Wy­combe in 2015 with a spe­cial con­cert com­mem­o­rat­ing the 75th an­niver­sary of the Bat­tle of Bri­tain.
