The units major fundraising event at the South of England Showground at Ardingly will take place over the weekend of the 12th to 14th July.
The cadets and staff work extremely hard marshalling the car parking and selling programmes as well as shaking a few tins at the Ardingly Vintage & Classic Vehicle Show. The weather last year was atrocious with torrential rain on the Saturday. The cadets had to be bussed back to the unit in the early hours of Sunday morning due to the campsite being under 6 inches of water.
So this year we hope the weather will look upon us favourably so we can make it a great year for unit funds.
In the past years we have managed to raise just over £1,000 through the collections and programs and it is our major fund raising event for the Unit; Last year due to the weather I was still pleased to announce that we collected just over £560.
Hopefully we will see you there or at the Units Barbecue on Saturday 13th July at the Unit.
Captain (SCC) Darren Erb-Smith RMR
