On the 26th April cadets and staff from Barnsley Air Cadets attended the Disability Games in Scunthorpe. Cadets have trained over time and become qualified referees in the sport of Boccia. This has been the third year in a row the air cadets have run this event for the Rotary Club and we were honoured and pleased to do this again. We had a long day travelling across to be ready for the competitors to start, but the day was well worth the hard work and the early start.
