Storytellers, future public relations experts and budding journalists are being encouraged to get in touch with a Derbyshire-based youth organisation to help promote what they have to offer.

Derbyshire Army Cadet Force (ACF) needs help in telling local people what its cadets and adult volunteers do and why other people should consider joining their local ACF detachment.

The ACF is all about fun, action, adventure and friendship. Every week cadets and adult volunteers in the county are taking part in a range of activities such as drill, map reading, mountain biking, hiking, rifle shooting and archery but need assistance in promoting this to others.

Volunteering with Derbyshire ACF as either a uniformed adult volunteer, or a civilian assistant (non-uniformed volunteer) with public relations responsibility is a fantastic opportunity for those who want to build their journalistic skills for their future employment.

Colonel Chris Young, a senior adult volunteer and Derbyshire ACF’s Commandant, said: “Although no experience is needed, volunteers should be enthusiastic and eager to ‘hit the ground running’. We want to hear from people who have good written skills, enjoy taking photos and are interested in promoting the wide range of cadet activities through the year.

“This could be the perfect opportunity for a college or university student looking to develop their skills, or someone who wants to take on a new role outside of their daily job.”

Derbyshire ACF has detachments across the county including Derby, Chesterfield, Long Eaton, Buxton, Glossop, Ilkeston, New Mills, Matlock and Chapel-En-Le Frith.

To find out more about volunteering in your area with the ACF contact 01332 772025 ext 21 or email em-der-ao1@rfca.mod.uk
