to develop and achieve through the Army Cadets
All at ACCT UK are deeply saddened by the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the Sovereign of our nation and Patron of our charity. Our thoughts and condolences go out to The Royal Family. As we mourn the loss of our nation’s Queen, we remember an extraordinary life and legacy and salute Her Majesty’s lifetime of public service to the United Kingdom.
As Patron of ACCT UK, we remember with fondness and pride the many times over the years of her reign that she spent with the Cadet Forces and the inspiration that she gave to all cadets and adult volunteers. Our President, Lieutenant General Sir Andrew Graham said “I join with all at ACCT UK in paying tribute to Her Majesty The Queen and giving thanks for her commitment to our charity. The Queen was the embodiment of public service and as our Patron the example she set inspires all who work in support of the Army Cadet Force.”
We also develop the youth leadership and training abilities of adult volunteers in the Army Cadet Force. We believe that opening up opportunities to every young person to learn new skills, build confidence and develop friendships through Army Cadet Force activities will inspire young people to achieve their life ambitions.
