A YOUTH organisation has had a cash boost thanks to a community fund-raising group. Uttoxeter Army Cadets have recently been presented with £500 by the Royal British Legion. The funds are set to help pay for new equipment at the unit. The Army Cadet Force has been part of the East Staffordshire town for more than 70 years. The national organisation has been around since 1859, and has the motto of 'Inspire to Achieve.'

AN ALERT member of an East Staffordshire community group saved a man's life after he collapsed in a supermarket last Tuesday afternoon. Kerry Tillson, an adult instructor of the Uttoxeter Army Cadets, was out shopping with her partner when a middle-aged man suffered a seizure in Uttoxeter's Asda, on July 16. The qualified first aid instructor rushed to help the gentleman by putting him in the recovery position whilst another customer called 999, relaying information to the ambulance service.
