Cadets will be scaling the highest heights thanks to Principality

Cadets in Denbighshire will be scaling the highest heights thanks to support from Principality Building Society.

Wales’ largest building society has supported members of Prestatyn Air Cadets by helping them purchase adventure training equipment that will help them in their Duke of Edinburgh activities.

The local sponsorship from the Society’s Prestatyn branch will allow the 50 cadets, aged 12-19 years old, to buy new backpacks and other equipment.

Debbie Dickin, Principality Building Society’s Prestatyn branch manager, said: “We are really pleased to be able to help Prestatyn Air Cadets.  Like us, we know that they give a lot of time and effort to support a range of community activities in the local area. 

“Our community is vitally important to us and we hope the new bags and equipment will help them to succeed in their Duke of Edinburgh challenges. We wish them the best of luck and look forward to seeing them in action in the town.”

Prestatyn Air Cadets is a voluntary youth organisation open to young men and women aged between 12 and 19 years old. The largest squadron in north Wales, Prestatyn Air Cadets is well known in the community and surrounding areas of Prestatyn and further afield.

Flight Lieutenant Jez Kent said: “As a voluntary organisation for young men and women we rely on support from others to purchase equipment and other kit so we are very grateful to Principality for its support.

“The new equipment will support our cadets in the range of work that they undertake to support our local communities.”

In the last year Principality has supported a number of similar initiatives including a ladies rugby team in Ammanford, a school netball team in Mold and a mini-football team in Cardiff.
