Nottingham Sea Cadets take to the water

Sea Cadet Corps

Nottingham Sea Cadets are set to take to the water this week to raise money for their minibus appeal.

Sea Cadet Boat CruiseCadets and adult volunteers will join members of the public aboard the Nottingham Princess boat for a cruise down the River Trent which hopes to raise enough money to buy new transport for over 50 Sea Cadets in Nottingham.

The minibus, which will be used to transport Cadets to courses, events and competitions around the country, will be a first for Nottingham Sea Cadets who currently rely on hired transport to take Cadets to some of their off-site activities.

Adult Volunteer Rebecca Carter, Executive Officer at Nottingham Sea Cadets, said: “We are pleased to invite members of the public to join us for a day of activities and hope that those attending can also learn more about what we do.

“Fundraising is vital to us as an independent charity and we are currently working towards fundraising for our redevelopment, equipment, maintenance, and training funds to benefit both Cadets and adult volunteers.

“As a Sea Cadet you can gain new qualifications and take part in a variety of water-based activities such as sailing and kayaking, but we would not be able to offer these experiences without organising fundraising events like our Nottingham Princess Cruise.”

Members of the public are invited to attend this event on Saturday 1 August 2015. To find out more and buy tickets visit www.facebook.com/NottinghamSCC or phone 0115 958 0528
