Cadets from the squadron regularly help out charities through providing manpower to help with their fund-raising events or by helping with collections. In the past couple of years we have helped groups including:-

Chesterfield Shopmobility

Cadets bag packed in food hall of the Chesterfield branch of Marks and Spencer Plc. As a result of their efforts, the squadron was able to pass on a cheque for over 1500. This is enough to buy 2 of the electric scooters shown in the photo. These scooters are lent out to shoppers in the town who are unable to get around very well.

 

Ashgate Hospice

Cadets visited the hospice in December 06 to give a carol concert. For most of the patients there, it would have been their last Christmas.

Ability

The cadets were Bag Packing again at M&S over Easter 05. Despite the holiday period, the cadets raised 978 for the Chesterfield branch of "Ability" This charity helps young people with learning difficulties

 

 

Royal Air Force Association

The cadets help every year with the RAFA Wings Appeal by taking part in a street collection in Chesterfield on or around Battle of Britain Day. The funds raised are used to improve the lives of ex-RAF people of all ages. In September 2006, the squadron's cadets raised nearly 500 for the Royal Air Force Association

Royal British Legion

The cadets also help every year with the street collection for the Poppy Appeal on or around Remembrance Day in November each year.

British Heart Foundation

The cadets have assisted with a number of BHF fund raising activities by acting as marshalls for fun runs, bike rides etc
