Army Cadets from Forfar Detachment of Angus and Dundee Battalion have raised a staggering £506 whilst working at a bag pack in Forfar ASDA recently, an aspect of cadets doing their ‘Cadet in the Community’ work.
The bag pack was organised by Andy Stephens, a former adult of the Battalion who also ran the London Marathon this year in order to raise funds for the Alfie Gough Trust.
Alfie died at the age of two of Neuroblastoma, an invasive and serious cancer which affects mainly babies and young children. Although Alfie did not survive, the trust continues to raise funds to help other babies and young children that suffer this horrendous cancer.
Bag packs are just one way of donating to this worthwhile cause, another way is to donate direct by going online to www.alfiestrust.com.
The Forfar Detachment is always on the lookout for new recruits to join them every Wednesday evening from 7pm to 9pm. The organisation as a whole, accept boys and girls from the age of 12 (and in secondary school) to 18 years old and any interested adults.
