On Saturday 8th February 2014, the ‘Civilian Committee (CIVCOM)’ and a presentation party of cadets from 1053 (Armthorpe) Squadron accepted a cheque for £968.88 following a ‘Bag Pack’ at Edenthorpe (Doncaster) Sainsbury’s Supermarket.
The cheque was presented to the local RBL section, who were ‘over joyed’ with the kind and generous acts of all concerned. This made the grand total the Squadron raised for the ‘Poppy Appeal’ £7,104.11…..an amazing amount!
1053 Squadron Honorary CIVCOM Chairman, Mr Paul Grimley said, “What a fantastic and proud moment. The youth of today really get a bad press these days, so it is always pleasing to see that the ACO encourages young people to be better people and improve themselves in so many ways. Raising much needed money for the RBL is a true pleasure and the Squadron as with our country’s servicemen and women will always be proud to serve.”
