1444 (Brownhills) Squadron Air Cadets say thanks!

A lovely note reaches me from Flt Lt Carolyn Sault of the 1444 (Brownhills) Squadron Air Cadets, who do so much good work with the youth of Brownhills – people who shop locally will know that young people from the local Squadron often undertake bag packs at local stores in return for donations.

Well, yesterday, Saturday 16th December 2017, 1444 Squadron were packing bags at Tesco in Brownhills, as a result of which they received a great deal of praise on social media.

Flt Lt Sault and all the Cadets would like to thank all the people who donated this year, and thus allowed the group to carry on their fine work.

Hi Bob

Could you post this for me? The people of Brownhills are truly amazing.

1444 (Brownhills) Squadron Air Cadets would like to send a heartfelt big thank you to the public of Brownhills today who donated into our charity buckets in Tesco.

You have donated in excess of £1000 to the Squadron, all of which will go to Cadet activities. We cannot thank you all enough and thank you to Tesco for letting us bag pack in their shop.

Once again, thank you.

Flt Lt C Sault
Officer Commanding
1444 (Brownhills) Squadron

This is a wonderful thing, and at a time when there are justified concerns over local antisocial behaviour and other problems, it’s worth remembering that the vast majority of local youth are decent kids who do good stuff.

If you’d like to find out more about 1444 Brownhills Squadron, you can check out their website here and their Facebook page here. They’d love to hear from you.

Thanks to Flt Lt Sault for getting in touch. It’s nice to share something positive!
