‘Twas the Friday before Christmas, when all through the store,
The people were shopping for yet more and more;
The cadets of the Squadron, the staff and committee,
Were manning the checkouts, to help fill their kitty.
The shoppers were busily filling their trolleys,
With Turkey, plum pudding, sprouts, carrots and caulies;
The tills kept on bleeping as the items past through,
Our cadets were not phased, they knew just what to do.
“May we help you with packing?” was the polite question,
And their speed and efficiency helped ease the congestion;
The buckets were placed at each checkout with care,
In hopes that some loose change soon would be there.
The shoppers so busy, their stress vastly eased,
Gave thanks for the help that they had received;
The coins mounted up as they dropped from their hand,
And by the end of the day we had raised half a ‘Grand’.
On that day, ‘Bridge for Heroes’ were also in store,
To collect for that charity, and hopefully do more,
For Service Veterans who need some rapport,
Having slipped through the net of societies’ support.
So thank you to Morrisons for welcoming us in
And the hundreds of customers, each one, and All,
For being so generous and helping both groups,
The Cadets, (future citizens), and our Veteran Troops.
King’s Lynn Cadets busy helping in the supermarket before the Christmas break.
