33 Squadron raising £33,000 for charity

January 12, 2020

33 Squadron
On Abingdon Market Place there were soldiers from Squadron 33 of the 4th Regiment of Royal Logistic Corps, based at Dalton Barracks near Abingdon. They had come along with a heavily armoured vehicle which people could have a look around.
33 Squadron
33 Squadron have been challenged by their commanding officer to raise £33,000 over ten months for two charities: the Anthony Nolan charity that seeks to save the lives of people with blood cancer; and ABF – the Soldiers Charity. They were cycling on static bikes the equivalent of the distance between Abingdon and Inverness, where the Royal Logistic Corps are also based.
33 Squadron
Also on the Market Place were Abinit! litter picking volunteers. Some of the soldiers helped them too, as well as taking part in various other energetic activities.
33 Squadron
The 33 Squadron fund raising will culminate in a cycle ride round all the Royal Logistic Corps bases in the UK.

    Its good to see our friends from Dalton Barracks being active in the town, after all we are a garrison town, pity they don’t participate in the annual extravaganza, or have they never been invited?

    An excellent idea and all success to them. I would however be much more inclined to sponsor them if they put their brains and brawn behind community projects rather than static rowing. Has the Ock bridge been repaired for example ?

    Sounds like a great idea to me – I can think of several I could point them towards, and they couldn’t be less effective than the current efforts.
