Culdrose WO & SR Mess support local charity
The Royal Naval Air Station Culdrose Warrant Officers and Senior Rates mess have been recognised for supporting a Cornish charity.
Warrant Officer Steve Cass, President of the Royal Naval Air Station Culdrose Warrant Officers and Senior Rates mess, was delighted to receive a certificate from the charity CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young) in recognition of their fundraising donation of £701.13. The money was raised from a social event “The St Piran’s Party” and raffle hosted by the mess. The evening was an enjoyable celebration of all matters Cornish, and included participation of the Mousehole Male Voice Choir, some of whom are also members of the Air Station.
Steve Cass said: “The event succeeded in its aim of reinforcing the link between the Air Station and local community as well as raising money for a worthy cause which connects those groups. As a proud Cornishman who is equally proud to serve as President of RNAS Culdrose Warrant Officers and Senior Rates Mess, it was particularly satisfying to see locals and those from ‘up country’ enjoying the atmosphere and entertainment.”
Whilst CRY is a national charity, the mess specifically raised money in aid of the Debbie Rendle Memorial Fund, so those who generously donated prizes are pleased to know that this money will help towards medical screening of Cornish men and women in the affected age group.
