Three Cadets (2 from Tynemouth Squadron and 1 from Morpeth Squadron) accompanied by Flt Lt Laidler joined Jonathan Miles on his radio show on Thursday 24 August 2014 to talk about the upcoming expedition the Cadets are undertaking to South Africa.

The 13 cadets and two adult staff will spend three weeks volunteering in an impoverished community, visiting battlefields, trekking and will even have the chance to go on safari.

The five girls and eight boys aged between 15 and 18 from 346 (Tynemouth) and 404 (Morpeth) Squadrons fly out on July 28 and will spend their first week at Entabeni in northern South Africa, where they will undertake a number of community projects, including helping to renovate and paint a village school.

They will also host a school sports day and are taking out football kits to donate to the children.
