Established in 1939, 146 (Northwich) Squadron Air Cadets is a premier unit of Royal Air Force Air Cadets – which has over 960 squadrons in the UK. Cadets gain valuable life skills and nationally recognised awards that will add to their record of academic achievements with Duke of Edinburgh Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards – and three BTEC diplomas – Aviation Studies, Teamwork and Personal Development and Music.
The Squadron is funded using cadet subscriptions, fundraising activities and donations. A lot of our activities are subsidised by the Royal Air Force.
Any donation will have a huge impact on our Squadron. We will use donations to fund for any number of things, including running our two minibuses, support upkeep of the Squadron band or buy equipment for our stores, which in turn supports less advantaged cadets at the Squadron.
Donations can be made, with or without gift aid, via the Charities Aid Foundation website – https://cafdonate.cafonline.org/8110
