The Lightmongers are proud to support two Cadet Units in London:

56 (Woolwich) ATC Royal Air Force Cadets and TS Wizard, Haringey SCC

These affiliations were both formed in 2010 and have flourished with the support from both members and members’ companies.

Our cadet liasion officer is Liveryman David Burns.

The Lightmongers give donations in kind and financial support to both units and in return the cadets support our events including parading in the Lord mayor’s Show, the Christmas Carol Concert and our annual dinners.
