During No 4 (Korea) Company Camp 7-9 February, training stopped just before lunch to allow for our Honorary Colonel Sharman Birtles DL, to present each detachment in the company a certificate in recognition of all the hard work of the cadets and staff in Fundraising over the last year for very worthy causes.
The latest charity to benefit from their hard work is CLIC Sargent. CLIC Sargent is a charity which supports young people with cancer. It also gives help to their families.

The Honorary Colonel thanked the cadets and staff for raising an incredible amount of £6151. A nominated cadet from each detachment was called out to receive the certificate. This will go on display in each detachment for the cadets and staff to remember the great work they have done.
