i go air cadets and it is the biggest youth organization in the world. i am going to try and get a message out to the 35 local squadrons in essex and see if the essex wing can sponsor canvey and try to do a partnership. that might get some more money.
It is a good idea, I remember when I was there a similar thing was tried (different charity) but because each squadron is a registered charity and struggling for money themselves it is difficult to get them to pin anything down. Well worth a try though
