A volunteer from Derbyshire Army Cadet Force (ACF) has received an award for completing more than 25 years of service with the youth organisation.
Staff Sergeant Instructor Kath Buckland, 60, from Stapleford, is currently the longest serving female at Derbyshire ACF and was delighted to be awarded the Cadet Force Medal by her colleague, and fellow adult volunteer, Major Garry Newbury.
ACF volunteers are awarded the Cadet Force Medal after twelve years’ service and then for every six years after that.
Kath said: “I have loved working with the cadets over the years. It makes me so happy to see their faces when they achieve a goal or are just simply congratulated for something.”
