At the end of December last our Branch made a donation to 2246 (Carnforth) Air Cadet Squadron towards some climbing equipment. On Tuesday 19thFebruary three Committee members visited the Squadron HQ for a photo shoot with the cadets and staff. Together with a donation from the Freemasons, we purchased nine helmets, nine harnesses and a climbing rope. Another rope for abseiling is also on order. Sgt Joe Ashton is the staff member with responsibility for climbing and he is qualified to take the cadets to indoor climbing walls. With this equipment they will be able to climb all year round. If they can “borrow” a member of staff from 345 (City of Lancaster) Squadron who has the necessary qualifications they will also be able to go climbing on natural rock faces.
