Reach for the Sky Ltd is proud to support The Army Cadet Force who are celebrating 150 years of service this year. Throughout the country events will be taking place to celebrate this milestone. The ACF are a youth organisation for children aged 12 to 18 that is sponsored by the Army and run by adult volunteers who give up their time to support them to aspire to achieve. With over 131,000 cades across the country and 25,000 adults it is one of the largest and most successful youth organisations in the UK.
Captain Adrian Paice came up with the idea of The Cycle Challenge 150 and together with Captain James Davis, Major Terry Hayter along with 96.4 Eagle Radio’s afternoon presenter Kim Robson they will cycle 150 miles in 48 hours over 3 days, passing through every major town in Surrey.
Supported enroute by Cadets from all detachments they will be raising money for both Help the Heroes and the Surrey Army Cadet Force Association. They are hoping to raise £10,000.00 during the event.
During the ride on Friday 23rd July 2010 there is a charity cricket match at Felbridge and on Saturday 24th July 2010 The Big Pub Quiz will be held in Guildford. Reach for the Sky Ltd has donated a balloon flight voucher as a prize at one of these events.
We wish them luck with the challenge!
