A POLICE fund is helping an air cadet squadron cook up a storm.
Northumbria Police Charities Fund has donated six camping stoves to the 2344 (Longbenton) Squadron of RAF air cadets to be used in campcraft training.
This training can quickly boost the skills and confidence of young people, helping them find work and/or take on further education.
Squadron Commanding Officer Flight Lieutenant Gary Richardson said: “Our camping stoves were old and tired and in great need of replacement after years of use.
“The new stoves will last for years and I’d like to thank the Northumbria Police Charities Fund for their kindness in showing their support to our young people and their future.”
Sarah Dodds, who is the Charities Fund Trustee for North Tyneside, said: “We were delighted to help out with these stoves.
“The Air Cadets provide the ideal opportunity for young people in the area to take part in a range of activities in a safe and positive learning environment.”
