‘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.
