Nuneaton Air Cadets raise money and Trophy hopes.
Members of 121 (Nuneaton) Squadron were out in force in the town centre on Saturday September 26 collecting donations from passing shoppers.
The collection was part of the 'Battle of Britain Wings Appeal' by the Royal Air Forces Association (RAFA), which provides help and support for former members of the RAF and their families.
With about 80,000 members and 500 branches in the UK, Europe and beyond the RAFA needs all the help it can get and the cadets were determined to do their bit.
Last year the Nuneaton Air Cadets won the prestigious RAFA Coventry Branch, Wings Appeal Trophy, which is awarded to the Coventry area Air Cadet unit that raises the most money during the street collections. The cadets were keen to exceed last year's total of pounds 737 to be in with a chance of retaining the Trophy for a third consecutive year.
Anyone who wishes to make a donation to the RAFA 'Wings Appeal' can do so online at www.rafa.org.uk/fundraisingwingsappeal.
asp or by calling freephone 0800 0182 361.
