Suffolk Cadets and Ex Cadets raise over £1300 for Royal British Legion

4 November 2017

Suffolk cadets RSM Harry Pickess and Ethan Smith along with ex-cadets RSM Tom Parott and Grenadier CSM Mercer raised over £1,300 for the Royal British Legion, in a 10Km charity run they organised themselves.

On Saturday in Kessingland Suffolk, with the wind whipping up the sea and mist hanging over the water, the four cadets and ex-cadets gathered on the beach with their families, representatives from the Royal British Legion and Staff Sgt Lesley Utting and Sgt John Tillotson from Suffolk ACF (representing ACF Sports and Photography).

At 10:20, the team of runners set off with the wind in their favour, heading for Claremont Pier Lowestoft. The four arrived victorious just over an hour later, greeted by their supporters who had driven to the pier to await their triumphant arrival.

Well done guys - fantastic!
