Allan Webb Ltd is a proud supporter of the Armed Forces Covenant and, as such, we are looking to support the Gloucestershire Army Cadet Force who have aspirations to reduce the financial barriers to joining the cadets.
A major barrier to entry is footwear. Whilst uniforms are provided free of charge, it is up to Cadets to fund their own footwear which needs to be robust enough for Cadet Activities. These typically range from £50 - £150 a pair.
The aim of Gloucestershire Army Cadet Force is to:
- Provide every young person who joins the Cadets with a pair of boots free of charge.
- Continue to replace these boots as the young person grows, or the boots become unserviceable.
As a company, Allan Webb Ltd is aiming to raise £3,000 in total to provide much needed financial support for this worthy cause. As a collective, our team is aiming to travel as far as we can by walking, swimming, cycling or running over a 4 week period.
Given these difficult times of financial uncertainty, we don't want to see any young person miss the opportunity to join the cadets, and reap the associated physical and social benefits, simply because they can't afford to join in.
To help facilitate our fundraising efforts, we've set up a JustGiving page.
If you would like to check out our progress, or donate to this worthy cause, please follow the link below. Alternatively, you can scan the QR code to take you to the page.
As our team get out and about with their fundraising efforts, we've encouraged them to capture the beautiful sights they encounter and keep us up to date with their travels. The British great outdoors truely is a spectacular sight to behold.
