Visiting Radio Dawn in Nottingham

One adult volunteer and one Cadet from Nottinghamshire Army Cadet Force (ACF) were invited to Bobbersmill Community Centre  on Thursday 28 May to appear on Radio Dawn.

 

Radio Dawn is a community radio station based in Hyson Green, Nottingham and is primarily targeted at the Muslim community.

Dr Musharraf Hussain, Chief Imam and Director of Radio Dawn, invited the ACF into the community centre to explain more about what the cadet force has to offer both young people and adult volunteers in Nottingham. He said: “The Army Cadets is a wonderful opportunity for young people to learn real life skills which will enhance their education and career prospects.

“I want our Muslim community to know more about this wonderful youth organisation that can benefit young people. It is a great opportunity for them to improve themselves outside of school.”

Second Lieutenant Tom Tidy, took part in the Radio Dawn interview, he explained: “We were delighted to be invited in to the Muslim community to talk about the ACF and why we welcome both new Cadets and adult volunteers to join us at our detachments.  Nottinghamshire ACF is home to over 850 cadets and almost 170 adult volunteers in 30 detachments across the county, each taking part in a variety of activities each week so I’m sure there is something available to everyone interested in volunteering.”
