An Air Cadet has beaten thousands of other young people to win a prestigious regional sporting award.
Danni Rulton, of Colne Valley’s 1163 Squadron of Air Training Corps, was presented with the Regional Sports Cadet of the Year Award for London and the South East Region.
Miss Rulton, who was presented her trophy from Group Captain Les Hakin RAF, Regional Commandant LASER, said: “I am thrilled and very proud, it is amazing that I managed to win against so many other cadets across the region.”
