WELL DESERVED . . . Christopher Tyson with his cadets award

Flight Lieutenant Christopher Tyson was recognised for his dedication in the Cadet Adult Recognition Awards (CARAs) which seeks to recognise the dedication and selflessness of the Cadet Force Adult Volunteers (CFAVs) who give their time and energy to help young people aged 12-18.

He was nominated by his cadets who wanted to thank him for his service.

On receiving his award, Christopher said: “I’m incredibly proud to have been awarded this CARA, it’s a huge surprise! It’s nice to get an award nominated from the cadets – at the end of the day what we do is all about trying to give cadets opportunities; opportunities to go out and see things, do things that they wouldn’t do anywhere else, so to get nominated by a cadet really is a special gift so thank you very much.”

Congratulating him, Lowland RFCA head of communications, Kate Johnston added: “The vast proportion of those who deliver the cadet programme are volunteers. It’s utterly inspiring and we believe these fantastic volunteers deserve a big public thank you.”
