RGS CCF award winner in the Armed Forces Community Lockdown Awards
Reigate Grammar School is pleased to announce that its Combined Cadet Force has been named winner of the Most Outstanding Service Personnel in Lockdown (Group) award in the Armed Forces Community Lockdown Awards in association with the Invictus Games Foundation, hosted by Pathfinder International.
The RGS CCF has had an incredible year despite dealing with the constraints of Covid. Activities have included a field day at Tilgate Park in October, a poppy run which raised over £500 and involvement in Operation Bletchley which also raised £500 for ABF – The Soldiers’ Charity.
Led by Contingent Commander, Lieutenant Andy Pruvost, the RGS CCF has seen an increase in numbers over the year. The CCF offers young people a broad range of challenging, exciting and adventurous activities. Personal responsibility, leadership and self-discipline are its core values.
With a recent affiliation secured with the Grenadier Guards, the RGS CCF will offer new levels of opportunity including field trips to Buckingham Palace and regimental workshops.
RGS was honoured to be the only CCF and overall cadet unit shortlisted in these awards and is now celebrating this incredible win. Lieutenant Pruvost commented,
“I’m incredibly proud of our contingent. They are a pleasure to work with and they deserve this nomination.”
Headmaster, Mr Fenton remarked,
“Mr Pruvost continues to make an excellent contribution to the school and his dedication to our CCF is impressive. I have no doubt the CCF will continue to go from strength to strength.”
