TEENAGE Cadets from across Newtownabbey played their part in remembering the nation’s fallen by actively supporting the Royal British Legion’s annual Poppy Appeal.

The young people joined forces with former service personnel and members of the Royal British Legion to add power to this year’s push on Poppy sales at Northcott Shopping Centre, helping to raise £3,752.30 for the Appeal.

Local Cadets also took part in Remembrance services in Ballyclare, Glengormley and Whiteabbey, and at Belfast’s Cenotaph.
