Airforce cadets bag RSL benefits

 

AIRFORCE cadets are the latest group to benefit from the Laidley RSL Sub-branch's monthly fundraising efforts.

Now a regular feature of Laidley's Friday street markets, the early morning sausage sizzle has become a popular breakfast venue for market patrons.

On hand to help out last week were cadets, Corporal Kimberley Osborne and Cadet Under Officer Krystal Clothier.

CUO Clothier said she was most grateful for the $420 dollars in proceeds handed over by RSL president Mike Nowlan.

“We are currently setting up an engineering room at our squadron headquarters at the University of Queensland Gatton Campus, and this money will go a long way towards helping out,” she said.

Mr Nowlan said the monthly breakfasts were aimed at supporting a variety of community projects.

“As well as lending a hand to the three service cadets, we are also raising funds for the Landmine Museum and Orphanage in Cambodia and the restoration of a World War II Beaufort Bomber,” he said.
