Shirley Lions recently attended Shirley & District Sea Cadets annual presentation evening. The evening is attended by cadets and their parents and various awards are made and trophies presented to cadets who have excelled in a number of different cadet disciplines. Shirley Lions support two different cadet activities each year and Lion President Martin Wright presented two cheques on the evening. The first was for £600 to enable two outstanding cadets to go on a tall ships experience and the second for £100 was by way of sponsorships for two cadets who entered the annual Devizes to London canoe contest. A number of cadets who are members of our Young Leaders in Service scheme will in turn be assisting us at Shirley Carnival in July by which time we estimate some of will have reached their 50 hours goal.
