A Double Surprise for Hindley Detachment

24 May 2019

SSI Debbie Callaghan, PRO Greater Manchester ACF

Over the last few weeks Hindley (KRH) Detachment, No 5 (Anzio) Company have received two surprise visits.

One was from the Mayor of Westhoughton who wanted to meet the cadets and one cadet in particular who the Mayor had been told he had sadly been beaten up whilst doing his paper round. SI Sue Sergison, Detachment Commander, welcomed the Mayor and three members of NPC Kung-fu Bolton Centre, who were also present on the night. The members had come along to give the cadets an introduction to self defence class. The Mayoral visit was a nice surprise visit for them too.

Another surprise visit was made by the Leigh Branch of the Lions Charity who visited the Detachment and gave a £500 cheque and a new freezer for the Detachment. The money was given to enable items to be bought which are in need at the Detachment. Thank you so much to them.

In the Detachment Commanders words, SI Sue Sergison “How fantastic is that!!”
