Volunteering Glenfield Air Cadets on Forces TV
Two Glenfield Air Cadets appeared on Forces Television News being interviewed about their
volunteering roles at a Leicester Community Hub.
The two cadets, Cadet Sergeant Sam Mason and Cadet Neave Williamson are helping with the making up and distribution of food and medicines to those within the Groby and Ratby area who
cannot get around during this difficult time.
Both cadets are from 2070 (Glenfield) Squadron, part of the Royal Air Force Air Cadets, and volunteered to give their time. Although their work is not a Squadron activity, the squadron takes great pride in the service they are providing within the community.
Forces Television, part of the British Forces Broadcasting Service, picked up on the story after it featured on various Air Cadet media platforms. A film crew from Forces TV filmed the pair in action and interviewed the two cadets.
Sam said of the experience; “For myself it felt brilliant i just can’t believe that I was on the telly on Forces TV News. I feel very privileged to have been given the opportunity to be interviewed and record what I and and Cadet Williamson have been doing to help out our community.The team that came from Forces TV were brilliant, they were super friendly. I want to say thanks for giving their time”.
Neave also spoke of the experience; “I really enjoyed the interview and I thought that the interviewer was really nice. We had some good conversations when we weren’t filming and she made me feel really confident. I loved the fact that I was seeing behind the scenes, especially since journalism is a career path I’m thinking about taking. It was really fun to be involved in something like this, and I want to say thanks to the team for being so nice and helping to tell our story in such a positive way.
