A group of police cadets will be walking six miles on Armed Forces Day to raise money for Blind Veterans UK, the national charity for vision-impaired ex-Service men and women.
On Saturday June 24, the West Conwy Volunteer Police Cadets, aged between 13 and 18-years-old, will set off from Colwyn Bay Pier and walk to Llandudno Pier.
The date of the walk is significant as it is Armed Forces Day, a day in which everyone can join together and show their support for those who make up the Armed Forces community including serving members of the military, reservists, veterans, cadets and their families.
Sam Roberts, Voluntary Cadet Leader of the West Conwy Volunteer Police Cadets said:
“The cadets are really excited to be taking part in the event and have enjoyed the whole process of learning more about Blind Veterans UK.
“Being involved in research and planning the event has been a great experience for them.”
The cadets have already raised £310 for Blind Veterans UK. If you would like to support them in boosting this amount please visit: justgiving.com/fundraising/samantha-roberts
