The Eldessouky sisters from Northumbria ACF have been learning Makaton for the skill part of their DofE and their clip featured on Colonel Lorraine’s show this week. Amazing work!

Cadet Lance Bombardier Daniel Reeve

More of our Cadets have been doing their bit to support NHS staff and Cadet Lance Bombardier Daniel Reeve, Suffolk ACF has been printing 3D clips for PPE Masks which are going to Essex Partnership NHS.

Virtual Promotions at Dorset ACF

It was fantastic to see the third virtual promotion from Dorset ACF.

“This is our latest Virtual Promotion, we’ve done three so far and there’s another one on the horizon as one of our CFAV’s moves from Capt to Maj - just awaiting the footage!

We don’t let the lockdown stop us recognising everyone’s efforts - Cadets and CFAVs both.”

CTC Frimley Park Supporting the NHS

Volunteers at CTC Frimley Park were snapped as they bagged up over 100 bags of fresh fruit ready for the frontline NHS staff on the wards at Frimley Hospital. Fantastic gesture!
