Sea Cadets raise money for minibus

Sea Cadet Corps

Nottingham Sea Cadets took to the water last weekend where they raised over £700 towards their minibus appeal.

The fundraiser, which was held on the Nottingham Princess Boat, saw members of the public cruise down the River Trent to help the unit raise money to buy a much needed method of transport for over 50 Cadets in Nottingham.

Cadets and adult volunteers from the unit currently rely on hired transport to travel to some off-site events and were thrilled at the turn-out to the river event.

Adult volunteer Rebecca Carter, Executive officer at Nottingham Sea Cadets, said: “It was a pleasure to welcome members of the public to our event where they could learn more about what we do and how this benefits young people.

“This event has been instrumental in fundraising towards our minibus appeal and we are now one step closer to being able to offer our own transportation to our Cadets and adult volunteers. We are grateful that the public have supported us to offer young people more opportunities through the Sea Cadets.

“We are looking forward to being able to offer our Cadets a new facility and allow them more opportunities to take pride in the organisation they are part of. The event was really successful and everyone enjoyed the raffle and the barbecue food.”

The event took place on Saturday 1 August 2015 and was attended by more than 70 guests.
