    Weʼve raised £335 to help subsidise the cost of squadron group activities and trips for cadets - making unique opportunities accessible to all.

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    92 (Chorley) Squadron is one of over 1,000 RAFAC (Royal Air Force Air Cadet) Squadrons across the UK . Every year nearly 56,000 air cadets and volunteer staff take part in exciting events all over the country. We know that our cadets love aviation, action and adventure, sports and getting to know people; but did you know that only certain activities such as flying, gliding, shooting and adventure training is funded centrally? Many other opportunities available to our cadets are funded by the squadron itself, by means of fundraising with support from the Squadron Civilian Welfare Committee.

    As a squadron we strive to provide Cadets with as many opportunities as possible to attend a variety of unique group activities and trips that you won't find anywhere else. It is our intention to continue to do this into 2019 and beyond, with trips already being planned such as a 3-day sightseeing visit to London in March 2019.

    Part of our activities planning process includes organising fundraising opportunities in a bid to help facilitate the activities/trips and help to minimise the costs to parents/guardians by subsidising the costs where possible (for example, cadets attending the 3-day London trip will pay a nominal fee of just £50 each - the remainder of the bill being met by the squadron).

    As part of this ongoing fundraising effort, we plan to hold a sponsored swim to raise funds to put towards future activities / trips for the squadron.

    We have secured part of the pool at the All Seasons Leisure Centre in Chorley on Friday 15th February 2019. The Sponsored Swim will take place during normal squadron parade times and Cadets are aiming to swim a total of 92 lengths (to reflect our Squadron number).

    Please share this JustGiving link with family, friends and social media contacts to maximise our fundraising endeavours. The wider we cast our net for sponsorship, the greater funds we can generate to provide more activities for our cadets, so your help is crucial.

    A more conventional sponsor form is also being circulated with each participating cadet for those wishing to donate who do not have access to the Just Giving page.

    Thank you for your support
