Community work undertaken by North Somercotes Army Cadets has been recognised.

North Somercotes Army Cadets have been busy putting in the hours, dedicating a lot of their

time helping out in the

local commmunity and

the news of this work

was acknowledged at

the Lincolnshire Army Cadet Force (ACF) Annual Camp they went on recently.

The cadets have been spending time working at The Ark Animal Rescue and Retirement Home in North Somercotes.

This work has earned

their detachment the ‘Commandant’s Community Challenge’ award.

Duties at The Ark have included putting coats on the dogs, cleaning the cat shelters and the goat compounds, and, best

of all for the cadets,

feeding the animals

treats.

Most of their animals

are at the centre waiting

for a loving home but

there are also long-term residents, which cannot be placed for a variety

of reasons.

The charity relies on volunteers, so the involvement of local

Army Cadets is greatly valued by the centre.

Pictured is the newly promoted Cadet Sergeant Amber-Jade Turner receiving the award

from Lieutenant Colonel Clark from Lincolnshire ACF.

If anyone is interested in joining the Army Cadets, either as an adult instructor or a cadet, should visit their website for more information via; armycadets.com.
