Weʼre raising £10,000 to Buy a Squadron Vehicle to transport cadets to training days and events, this will provide the cadets with new skills and qualifications.
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
1098 (Gosport) Squadron Air Cadets is a youth organisation that was established in 1941. It provides cadets with training in Flying, Shooting, Duke of Edinburgh, Sports, first aid, leadership and so much more. Although as a organisation we do have some funding from the Royal Air Force, individual squadrons like us have to do a huge amount of fundraising to ensure we are always providing the cadets with every opportunity available. This may be paying towards weeks away for the less fortunate, paying for transport to participate in sports events or Duke of Edinburgh weekends. All the staff who run the squadron are volunteers, who have other civilian jobs. We pride ourselves in supporting the cadets through their training but even we struggle to raise the funds required to keep going. We want to raise enough funds so we can buy a squadron owned vehicle that will enable us to take part in more activities and maximise the training available to our cadets.
We would like to buy either a 7 seater car or a 3.5 Tonne minibus so all our staff who do not hold a D1 license will be able to transport cadets to the relevant activities available to our cadets.
Please help us to raise this money for a much worthy cause.
