With period of deep uncertainty over at last, the CCF Contingent of Haberdashers' Aske's Federation Academies is back and rearing to go. After a very successful Summer Camp in Folkestone in July, cadets and staff are fired up to make this year the best year of the decade so far for the cadets.
Together with cadets already in the contingent and ideas from other units, the volunteers at HAFCCF have come up with an amibitious training plan for the next year and beyond. However, to pull it off WE NEED YOUR HELP!
The old minibus once used to transport the cadets has been left to die when they keys to it were never returned by departing staff. Vandals have taken advantage of this and now the unit is left without the means to go to the kinds of places where cadets can get the most out of the opportunities that being a cadet presents them with.
The MOD-sponsored Cadet Forces provide excellent developmental opportunities for young people to work on lifelong skills such as teamwork, leadership, communication, discipline, integrity, courage and selfless commitment. We do this by delivering exciting and varied training in line with our military-aligned syllabus. Topics like Shooting and Skill at Arms, Fieldcraft & Tactics, First Aid, Adventurous Training, Navigation & Expeditions and Drill & Turnout foster these skills and inspires these magnificent young men and women in their future lives. Why we do it all boils down to the motto of the Army Cadets: 'To inspire to achieve.' - Sgt. B Wardlaw, School Staff Instructor for HAFCCF
We are looking to replace the unusable minibus with a pair of Combi-vans to enable us to transport the cadets and their new equipment to the training areas and locations that mean the can maximise their own potential. With your support, they can be inspired to achieve something remarkable before they even turn 18!
