Last week Sea Cadets celebrated Remember a Charity week, a week dedicated to encourage more people to think about leaving a legacy to charities. A legacy is money set aside in a person’s Will to go towards a charity of their choice. Many units across the UK have received funding from legacies in the past and have used the money to purchase sailing equipment or maintain their unit buildings.
The theme of the week this year was to pass on 'words of wisdom' to the next generation. We had famous faces such as Alan Titchmarsh, Sarah Parish, Paul O'Grady and Alexander Armstrong pass on their 'words of wisdom' to the Corps.
Alan Titchmarsh - 'Follow your passion'
Sarah Parish - 'Invest in a vegetable patch'
Alexander Armstrong - 'Explore, dream, discover'
Paul O'Grady - 'A pet can make your life whole'
