Three senior Army Cadets from Long Sutton have been presented with the Duke of Edinburgh (DofE) Gold Award.

Cadets Sergeant Jordan Gee-Carter, Sergeant Major Jason Wellard and Sergeant Major Shannon Feary received their award at the final parade of the annual summer camp at Longmoor Camp in Hampshire.

They received their awards from Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant for Lincolnshire, Toby Dennis, who is also Honorary Colonel for Lincolnshire Army Cadet Force (ACF).

Jordan Gee-Carter said: “The whole experience was amazing. It makes you appreciate how valuable teamwork is.”

The Long Sutton trio have showed an admirable amount of commitment to achieve this.

To achieve the award, the three cadets had to be successful in five areas: undertaking volunteering, showing physical improvement, developing practical and social skills, plan and take part in an expedition and attend a residential.
