A bag-packing session at the Co-op raised over £1000 for Whitby’s Air Cadets.
The 740 (Whitby) Squadron Air Training Corps helped customers at the store in the town centre pack away their shopping last Saturday.
It will be used for adventure training and much needed IT equipment.
The unit is now looking to raise £2000 so members can go on a level one sign language course after having completed the introduction stage.
Squadron commander Martyn Marsh said: “It is absolutely fantastic. The cadets worked really well and thanks to the public for their generosity and the store for their support.”
