RAF Cadets Air Training Corps receive new minibus|
A squadron of RAF cadets has been presented with a new minibus following a two year fundraising campaign.
The young cadets were handed the keys to the Citroen Relay which was converted by Warnerbus.
The minibus will be used to transport the 45 cadets, aged between 13 and 17, to flying sessions at RAF bases and on other activities such as Duke of Edinburgh expeditions.
The squadron has taken part in a number of fundraising activities in recent years to raise £3,000 towards the new bus including a generous contribution from various charities.

Andrew Wallis, Production Director of Warnerbus was present during the formal handover and commented “It's always a great pleasure to meet the end-users of our vehicle conversions. The fact that years of fund raising and Charitable donations has finally materialised into a new minibus is very heartwarming, and I am sure that the young cadets will benefit greatly from it."
