Martin Moores is raising money for CHESHIRE SEARCH AND RESCUE

146 Northwich Air Cadets Sandstone Trail Challenge

Event date: 9th July 2016

My story

Northwich Air Cadets will take on a huge challenge next month, as they plan to walk the Sandstone Trail, raising money for Cheshire Search and Rescue (SAR).

The Sandstone Trail stretches from Whitchurch to Frodsham, 55KM in total. Cadets are used to walking this sort of distance over three days on a Silver Duke of Edinburgh Expedition, but plan to complete it in just 12 hours!

Flying Officer Martin Moores RAFVR(T), organiser of the event said: "This is a huge challenge and not one undertaken lightly. But the cause is a very worthy one and we will all be putting in 100% effort to earn our sponsorship money!"

"We also have a team walking to roughly half way, finishing at Beeston Castle, so our younger cadets can still get involved"

"We have nearly 20 cadets signed up already and support staff to run the event. We are also hoping to have some Cheshire SAR team members along for the challenge"

The Squadron was inspired to help Cheshire SAR following a visit in January. Team members Rob and Simon talked to the cadets about what they did and showed them some of the equipment used when they are called out to assist other services. Cheshire SAR is now the Squadron's charity of the year, with several events planned.

SAR teams receive no government funding and all members are volunteers. They assisted at 39 incidents in 2015 and 11 so far this year, some lasting several days. These mainly involve missing persons but also include road traffic collisions and flood assistance.

Cadets will be raising money via sponsorship from friends and family, but any donations made directly to Cheshire SAR would be hugely appreciated. Continued donations will allow this fantastic organisation to continue offering assistance around the Cheshire area.

Please see our fundraising page at for further details and information on how you can donate.
