Club mascot H’Angus was busy again in the local community recently as we went along to join a drill night at Hartlepool's Air Cadet Squadron, which is based at the Army Reserve Centre on Easington Road.
The Cadets are currently taking part in a programme focussing on healthy living and keeping up with participation in sports after leaving school.
And, with the focus on team sports, it was only right that H’Angus went along to join in and be part of the team for the night.
“Having H’Angus come along to one of our regular drill nights (which are held each Tuesday and Thursday) provided a fantastic opportunity for the Cadets to meet our local team’s mascot,” explained Civilian Committee Events Co-Ordinator Richard Shaw.
“The visit highlighted the positive role the Club plays in the community and also helped us to promote the enjoyable and fun side of team sports, along with the fitness benefits.
“This also allowed us to help show support for our local Football Club who in turn show their own support for the British Armed Forces through their commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant.”
