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.
