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
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
The charity relies on volunteers, so the involvement of local
Army Cadets is greatly valued by the centre.

from Lieutenant Colonel Clark from Lincolnshire ACF.
