CADETS around Bognor Regis have benefited from the support of the former town mayor.
Cllr Pat Dillon has presented cheques from the money raised through his year in office to his chosen mayor’s charities.
Lt (SCC) Gary Edgington MBE RNR, Sea Cadets chairman Raymond Rowe, along with past mayor’s Sea Cadet OC Ryan Birch and current mayor’s Cadet Jack Golding, were present to represent and collect on behalf of the organisation, pictured above.
Flight Lieutenant Mal Penberthy was present to collect the cheque for the 2351 (Bognor Regis) Squadron Air Training Corps, pictured right.
The representatives were delighted with the contributions and thanked Cllr Dillon for his efforts. He raised more than £1,200 in total and split the amount between the cadet forces across the town.
Cllr Dillon made his support for the young people’s organisations a key pledge after he was chosen as the town’s mayor last May.
