MEMBERS of the Camborne Army Cadets have been honoured for their help with the town's annual Poppy Appeal.

The cadets were presented with certificates by the town's branch of the Royal British Legion in recognition of their work collecting money for the November fundraising drive.

Vaughan Magor, a spokesman for the county's Army Cadets, explained: "The cadets were busy visiting local businesses and collecting the money raised for the Poppy Appeal.

"They were all very pleased that their work was recognised."

Major John Holmes, president of the Camborne branch of the Royal British Legion, presented the cadets with their certificates and thanked them for their efforts.

The total raised for the appeal by the Camborne branch of the Royal British Legion was just under £16,000.

The Camborne cadet platoon meets every Monday evening at 7pm and anybody interested in joining the unit can visit www.armycadets.com and click "Become a cadet".
