Last Sunday, Air Cadets from 1015 (Horsham) Squadron worked behind the scenes to make Race for Life at Horsham Park a success for the third year running.

The cadets formed a line to channel the runners into their respective categories – runners, joggers and walkers - and helped start the race the team from Heart fm. The cadets then handed water, snacks and a well-earned medal to runners as they crossed the finish line.

The Officer Commanding of 1015 (Horsham) Air Cadets, Flight Lieutenant Richard Foster said: “Race for Life is an excellent event supporting a fantastic cause, and we are glad that we could be part of the Race for Life in Horsham.

“This is the third time we have done this since Race for Life came to Horsham in 2013 and we look forward to helping out again next year.”

“Throughout the day the cadets were fantastic and I couldn’t tank them enough for all their efforts. So many people commented on how smart and well-mannered the cadets were. “

Charity Work is one of many activities offered by Horsham Air Cadets, they have the chance to do many activities including visits to RAF Stations, Adventure Training & the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.
