Squadron Raises £1000 For @Ashgate_Hospice ! #whatwedo

Through the combined efforts of members of 1082 (Brimington & District) Squadron, we have smashed our target fundraising amount of £200 by raising a total of £1000 during a sponsored abseil!!!

Ashgate Hospice was chosen as a charity because they helped our own Warrant Officer Richard Snell through his last stages of his fight with cancer. In his memory, all members abseiling wore Hawaiian Shirts – as this was Richard’s favourite item of clothing on Trent Wing Camps!

Half of our group went abseiling and the other half went walking, then swapped over. Thanks to The Adventure Service for lending a minibus and abseiling equipment to help us achieve our goals! The day went very fluidly and everyone enjoyed themselves, as you can see from the pictures!
