As an independent charity, but part of the national Sea Cadets, your support is vital to us.

We rely on the goodwill of our local community and businesses for financial support.

Sea Cadets welcome donations, large or small which can help provide opportunities for our cadets. Your donation can go straight to our Unit or via our branch teams which support lots of Units in a particular region or area. Or you can become a member of the national charity from just £25 a year.

A donation can:

  • - £20 will pay for a life jacket
  • - £50 can help pay for the heating of a unit
  • - £100 will pay for a new set of oars for a pulling boat
  • - £250 will send a Sea Cadet on a week's trip on flagship TS Royalist
  • - £1000 will help make vital health and safety upgrades for a Unit
  • - £2500 will buy a new boat for a unit - which will have a useful life of at least 25 years, serving hundreds and hundreds of cadets.

We welcome larger Corporate donations too and if you would like to find out more about how you can fund the work of the charity nationally please visit:

Current Fundraising Projects:

Each year it costs approximately £10,000 just to open our doors to the youth of Burnham-on-Sea.

This includes the cost of maintaining or refurbishing out unit facilities, nor does it include the cost of buying expensive new equipment such as boats or boating equipment for our young people to use. 

Supporting the Cadet Experience

 - Bursaries for some of our young to access training activities, such as sailing, windsurfing, mountain biking, UK Camping breaks, International Exchange Programmes (From £20 - £1,500 per child) 

Equipment that we need to raise money for over the next 12+18 months include:

- Replacement Mini Bus (prices start from around £10,000)

- Sport and adventure clothing.  This will enable our cadets to attend and participate in team events in team colours (Prices start from £1,000)

- Support to introduce a recycling scheme into our organisation through recycle bins to separate our waste.

- Dedicated ICT Equipment to support learning and development amongst our young people and volunteer scheme
