Tesco Bag Pack 2012

Shoppers at Tesco in Redditch were assisted with their weekly shop on 21stFebruary 2012 by Air Cadets from 480 (Studley) Squadron. The Cadets enthusiastically assisted shoppers in packing bags for over eight hours, leaving many happy shoppers. The bag pack, now an annual event, is one of the main fundraising events for the Squadron.

Flight Lieutenant Mark Hulme, Officer Commanding 480 Squadron, commented “The day was extremely successful. The Staff, Cadets and Civilian Committee members worked very hard all day and raised £860 in total. It is a fantastic achievement and I am proud of them all”.

Chairman of the Civilian Committee, Mr Clive Bennett added “The money raised will be used to provide a number of opportunities to the young people in the surrounding area and we would like to thank the Staff at Tesco’s Redditch for supporting us with this event”.

Studley Squadron parades every Monday and Thursday from 7.15pm to 9.30pm. We are open to new recruits from the age of 13 to 17. If you require further information about joining the Squadron, please contact us on 01527 850 393.
