A COMPANY has stepped in to help Chipping Sodbury air cadets after cash and six laptops were stolen during a break-in at the group’s premises in Yate.
Printing ink firm Sun Chemical, of Station Road, Yate, presented 2509 Squadron with a new laptop during a visit to the Armstrong Way base by the firm’s Richard Hayden and Carolyn Bennett.
They were also given a tour of the premises to discover the range of activities that involve the cadets.
Mr Hayden said: “We were told that the laptop would be a great help to the cadets in attaining their qualifications and working on various projects.”
The centre was raided and damaged in January, leaving the cadets and their leaders devastated. The youngsters had carried out fund raising to buy the laptops, which they used to study for aviation qualifications.
