The Garrick will host the evening on Saturday (April 12) to help raise money for the Staffordshire Young Police Cadets.

The scheme aims to strengthen links between the police and young people across Staffordshire.

Successful units have already been launched in Stafford and Cannock and their are hopes to add further groups in the coming months.

Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner Sue Arnold, who is organising the event, said: “Staffordshire Young Police Cadets are already working hard to support their local community.

“The service is all about giving advantages to young people – some from challenging backgrounds – who through a positive and vibrant programme can learn how to become responsible citizens.

“We want to sell 450 tickets to raise money for the Cadet charity and allow new units to be formed, uniforms to be provided, transport allocated and much more.

“Tickets will provide a great experience for friends and family as well as ensuring your hard-earned money goes to a great cause which is making a real difference locally.”

The cadets work towards Duke of Edinburgh bronze, silver and gold awards as part of the scheme, having a go at hiking, climbing and orienteering on the way.

Chief Constable Mike Cunningham, who is also chairman of the British Police Symphony Orchestram, added: “The volunteers working with our cadets have seen the young people grow and develop during their short time within Staffordshire Police and we are all keen to support the Police and Crime Commissioner’s objective to continue and extend the cadets scheme wider.

“Staffordshire Police Cadets is making a real difference to the lives of young people and the communities they then support and I’m really looking forward to meeting lots of our community at this amazing event at the Lichfield Garrick.”

Tickets are priced from £18 to £20 and can be booked by visiting or calling 01543 412121. VIP tickets, priced £40, are also available.
