RAF cadets set sights on second Duke of Edinburgh award after receiving Bronze award

TWO Royal Air Force cadets have sets their sights on a second Duke of Edinburgh Award (DofE) after gaining the Bronze award.

Corporal Sophie Radley and Cadet Jacob Troughton, of the 1220 (March) squadron, learnt new skills, undertook a two-day expedition, set periods of volunteering and physical education to complete the award.

They were presented with their awards by Flight Lieutenant Rob Bradshaw, Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire Wing BTEC and DofE officer.

Most cadets at the 1220 Sqn are working towards their Bronze awards with a significant number going for Silver and Gold awards.

To receive a DofE award participants must help others in the community, go on expeditions, physical education and develop new skills and hobbies. To get the Gold award, they must complete a residential project which helps young people the participant doesn’t know.
