We are always really pleased to learn more about the difference the donated outdoor gear makes to the Gift Your Gear groups.
We are really grateful to 80 (Bolton) Squadron Air Cadets for their recent updated.
Seeing happy young people enjoying the great outdoors is always so good.
At 80 (Bolton) Squadron, we run Bronze and Silver Duke of Edinburgh expeditions for cadets aged 14+. These can be be very expensive to get all the equipment together. The donations of equipment have help our cadets so far complete a practice day walk and also their practice expeditions. They will be using the equipment again to complete their assessed expedition in the summer. The donations have allowed our cadets to take part in something they may not have been able to afford. The confidence that Duke of Edinburgh Award gives our young people is amazing and without gift your gear some of these young people wouldn’t have been able to complete their award. As staff it makes us proud that they put in so much effort. Many Thanks again for your incredible donations – 80 (Bolton) Squadron Air Cadets
