Hartlepool Sea Cadets have secured the future of the unit, thanks to a generous donation from Hartlepool Youth - a grant giving organisation. Local solicitors Square One Law helped to draw up the contract. The £100,000 donation ensures that they can buy the building that they currently lease.

Paul Harrison, treasurer of Hartlepool Sea Cadets, said: “This is a fantastic location for Sea Cadets and we could not have it any better, being so close to the marina and all the facilities we have here. With Hartlepool being such a proud maritime town, we have an active unit and securing ownership of our building means that we can look forward to a very exciting future.”
