John Newbury, Chairman of the Squadrons Civilian Committee said, “This is the third year that we've taken part in the Dickens Night event. It's been a very successful evening from both the fundraising and public relations perspectives.”
“Can I also say a big thank you to the Committee, Staff and Cadets that attended on such a cold and wet afternoon and evening (Especially Jody who found the Mulled Wine stall for Trevor). The stall was a great success and the monies raised will be put towards our new mini bus. Thanks again to all”.
