Cadets taking part in the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme have received £1,000 from a Grantham county councillor to buy camping equipment.
Coun Adam Stokes granted the cash to the Grantham RLC Cadets from the Councillor Big Society Fund.
Coun Stokes said: “It’s a highly regarded scheme, and those who achieve the awards gain very useful skills and experience, plus it’s an excellent addition to their CVs.”
Twelve cadets are currently enrolled on the scheme.
Detachment commander Paul Robb said: “The grant from Coun Stokes is going to be very useful to the cadets group. Some of the outdoor equipment required for taking part in the Duke of Edinburgh Awards is beyond the pockets of some of our cadets. By providing all the gear they’ll need we can ensure everyone is on an equal footing.”
