Army cadets from Waltham Detachment, Humberside & South Yorkshire ACF have become Lincolnshire Co-op community champions in North East Lincolnshire.
From September to December each year, Lincolnshire Co-op supports local organisations through their Community Champions scheme.
The Community Champions scheme is one of the ways that Lincolnshire Co-op shares its profits. Every time a member shops at an outlet using their dividend card, a donation goes to the chosen champion at that time. Money from the carrier bag levy and fundraising activities will also go directly to the chosen Champions.
This year £563.35 has been raised to support the Army Cadets at Waltham to conduct the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award activities.
Detachment Commander Sergeant Instructor Darren Harvey said:
“It was a great privilege to be the community champions, thank you to all the members that donated, and to the Lincolnshire Co-op for giving the Army Cadets this kind donation. This will have a great impact on our ability to achieve more, through the Duke of Edinburgh’s award scheme, thank you”
