STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) are a key part of the RAF Air Cadets’ syllabus, and the equipment donated by David Wilson Homes will help the Cadets learn more about these important disciplines, developing skills that will see them throughout their future studies and careers.

Speaking on the donation, Jake Helm, Sales Manager at David Wilson Homes Yorkshire West, comments: “Investing in young people in the communities where we build new homes is incredibly important to us and the RAF Air Cadets (RAFAC) is a fantastic organisation supporting young people learn and develop lifelong skills.

“We’re delighted to be able to provide STEM equipment to help them along the way in their education. We hope the young Cadets have fun and learn something new from the donation.”
