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:

Recent and current projects include:

Replacement of the doors and windows of the building.

Conversion of two teaching rooms into purpose accomodation. 

Replacement of the units guttering.

New multimedia projector


Projects such as these and others rely on charitable help towards the unit from other organisations and the community, such as the Failsworth and Beyond Branch of the Women's Institute, who donated money towards the projector and also some tables.


We were recently awarded a community support grant from the Royal Bank of Scotland, and this will help fund some of the above.

Recently we also had staff from British Gas visit the unit to help decorate the main deck, giving it a much needed revitalisation, which we hope to spread around the unit headquarters.
