The Perton Detachment of the Army Cadets has become an integral part of our Christmas Santa Sleigh activities.
Each year the Detachment Cadets, their Officers and Adult Instructors devote hundreds of hours to helping the Club take its Santa Sleigh to visit children in neighbourhoods around the City - bringing a little bit of Christmas magic with it.
This evening members of the Club visited the Detachment at the ACF Centre at Tettenhall College to pass on our thanks and to leave them with a donation to help with their activities in the coming year.
With nearly 40,000 cadets the Army Cadet Force offers young people the chance to take part in exciting and challenging activities such as fieldcraft, adventurous training, first aid, music, sports and shooting as well as the opportunity to travel and make life long friendships.
Cadets have the opportunity to achieve the Army Proficiency Certificate teaching leadership skills, discipline and self-confidence to help equip them for life. The Cadet Force also offers the opportunity to gain valuable qualifications such as the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, BTEC First Diploma in Public Services or Music or the ILM Certificate in Team Leading.
It's a great time for the cadets and a great preparation for life - you can find out how to join or volunteer with the Army Cadet Force on their website - https://armycadets.com/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIo4Pi3Nny4AIVzJztCh3z_wfXEAAYASAAEgJFZvD_BwE
