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:

TS Orion is currently fundraising for various different elements of training and maintenance.

1. Redevelopment Fund

Nottingham Sea Cadets is undergoing an appeal for £1million to redevelop the entire site. The unit was originally built in the 1940s and is now rather dated. In order to bring everything up to scratch and to be able to provide the best care for our young people, we intend to rebuild on the site and create a brand new all-purpose building.

2. Equipment and maintenance

We are always in need of donations of or towards maintenance equipment, including tools and paint, in order to keep the unit as safe and welcoming as possible.

3. Training Fund

All cadets have the opportunity to attend courses nationally on Royal Naval bases and with our offshore fleet. These courses are great experiences and are exceptional value for money; however some cadets do struggle to find the funding in order to attend. We always appreciate any donations towards our training fund which allows us to sponsor cadets in difficult circumstances.
