Holsworthy cadets help local family
CADETS from the Holsworthy detachment of Devon Army Cadet Force have paid for a disabled youngster from Bideford to enjoy a weekend break with his family at Calvert Trust Exmoor.
The �450 was raised by an event called “I’m a cadet....get me out of here” and based on the famous bush tucker trials of the television series.
Cadets were challenged to eat an array of unusual food sources including live worms, stinging nettles and squirrel.
During the half term Lynn Ashman was able to take her disabled son Tom, along with other family members, to the outward bound centre for a weekend activity break.
“We had the most amazing time and Tom was able to join in on all the activities,” said Lynn.
