Cadets’ hike boosts funds

Have your say

AIR cadets from Thorne completed the Howden 20 walk in East Yorkshire on Saturday to raise money for their squadron.

The 15 cadets, aged between 13 and 19, were joined by members of staff from the squadron for the 20-mile walk which takes in Boothferry, Howden, Bubwith, Breighton, Wressle, and Asselby.

For many of the cadets, the distance was the furthest single walk they had ever completed. Cadet Olivia Heywood said: “I was glad when it was over, but I have a big sense of accomplishment.”

Squadron Commander, Flight Lieutenant Andrew Emms, added: “There were many tired feet and legs at the end, but completing the Howden 20 is something all the cadets can be proud of.”
