ROSS LIONS HELP TO KEEP THE FLAG FLYING FOR AIR CADETS

It was drawn to the attention of the Ross Lions that the Ross-on-Wye 1002 Squadron Air Cadets had not been able to use their banner on parades because of its poor condition. It had become worn out and a new one was desperately needed. Amongst other businesses and local organizations they approached the Ross Lions Club with a plea for financial assistance to purchase the new flag.

The Lions have helped the Air Cadets quite a few times in the past, along with other organizations who provide young people with activities to keep them occupied, interested, gaining valuable experience and confidence. They, therefore, had no hesitation in deciding to give a donation of £150 towards the new flag.

The Ross Lions President, Keith Wilding and the Public Relations Officer, Bernard Fowkes, visited the Air Cadets at their premises in Alton Street and the cheque was presented to Flt Lt Marsh. On accepting the cheque Flt Lt Marsh said how grateful they were for the donation which would help tremendously. They were now hoping that other benefactors would now come along and help with raising the required total of over 600 which a new flag would cost. Anyone wishing to help should either visit the Squadrons Headquarters in Alton Street on Monday or Friday evenings or contact Mrs J Bennett on 07920083010.
