Air cadets from the Sleaford area have raised a fantastic £900 to keep the county’s air ambulance flying in a massive weekend effort.
Cadets and staff of 2160 Sleaford Squadron of the Air Training Corps, based on The Drove, spent the weekend walking, running or cycling to generate funds for the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance, completing a 111-mile trek.
They chose 111 as their target as the distance from Sleaford taking in all the RAF stations in the county and back again.
Each participant individually completed their part and recorded their route, taking photographs to post on the squadron’s Facebook page (shown here in a montage), concluding on Sunday evening.
Commanding officer, Flt Lt Karen Turner said: “This has been a magnificent effort by all who took part.
“There have been some outstanding individual efforts amongst our personnel including two of our senior cadets completing the whole 111-mile target. Whether they completed one mile or 111 miles, I am immensely proud of everyone who participated.”
