- Access to Education and Employment Bursary
The aim of this bursary is to help remove barriers for those Army Cadets of the Staffordshire and West Midlands (North Sector) Army Cadet Force wishing to engage with education and/or employment.
- Annual Clay Pigeon Shoot
Our Annual Clay Shoot is held at Doveridge Shooting Ground on the Staffordshire/Derbyshire border each September. This is an informal occasion for both experts and complete beginners and guns are provided for those who do not have one of their own. Teams of four compete for a range of prizes including the Clarke Family Perpetual Cup. This event attracts some of the best shots from the British Army and the Army Cadet Force.
- Annual Regimental Fundraising Dinner
Every year we host our Annual Dinner Night – a special occasion that takes the form of a Regimental Dinner, complete with long tables, Mess Dress or black tie, Regimental Silverware, PMC and other regimental traditions. Highlights of the evening include a performance by the Corps of Drums; listening to Cadets talking about their experiences, and a Guest Speaker.
