Charity Walk around Draycote Water

FS Oliver Bremridge is currently taking part in the highly prestigious Junior Leader Course which selects only the best, most competent cadets and puts them through their paces one weekend every month throughout the year in a variety of different tasks and challenges. The majority of training is based around fieldcraft skills, teamwork, leadership activities however they are also tasked with raising money for charity as part of their assignments.

FS Bremridge has chosen to raise money for the John Thornton Young Achievers Foundation who specialise in raising money to support young people from a wide range of youth organisations providing them with scholarships and bursaries to support their personal development and the pursuit of their ambitions.[See link above for more information].
