2402 Burghfield and 1996 Earley Squadron once more ventured into the early morning light to support Parkinson’s disease Research. A total of 14 cadets and 3 members of staff were on hand to provide marshalling support for the Parkinson’s UK Run Highclere event at Highclere Castle, the main setting for the ITV period drama Downton Abbey.
The cadet assistance was provided by Flt Lt Paul Beardwood of 2402 (Burghfield) Squadron and Flt Lt Julie Alexander of 1996 (Earley) Squadron who offered their assistance to Parkinson’s UK. The effort by those running the Parkinson’s UK Run Highclere event will help to pay for vital research towards this degenerative disorder.
Visiting the heritage site for the first time, all the cadets were amazed by Highclere Castle and its grounds. Besides being a fantastic venue and good fun, the cadets joined in with the spirit of the occasion, making friends and supporting this worthwhile cause.
