The Officer Commanding (OC), Flight Lieutenant Hall of Bloxwich Academy Combined Cadet Force (BA CCF) has been in contact with the Royal British legion Bloxwich Branch (RBLBB) and is delighted to announce that the school and the RBLBB have been affiliated.
This means that BA CCF and the wider school population can now be even more closely involved with the annual Poppy Collection and the Annual Service of Remembrance as the OC is the parade Marshall and committee member of RBLBB. This further strengthens the relationship from when BA CCF cadets have attended previously the parade. This affiliation will assist the school and the cadets in engaging in local community events, charity fundraising as well as supporting serving military personnel, military veterans and their families.
With the presence of the RBLBB in the school this will allow cadets, staff and students to be a member of the RBLBB and will give cadets and pupils access to charitable funds to help support activities like the Duke of Edinburgh scheme, Combined Cadet Force and possibly trips to enrich their learning journey and their wider life enrichment.
It is intended that a youth section of the Royal British Legion be set up, with the pupils having their own committee and running their own events.
