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: ms-sc.org

We do not receive money from the Royal Navy or the MOD and exist entirely on donations and cadet subscriptions.  There is an annual Flag Week when all cadets, parents and staff brave rain or shine in collecting money for the following year.  All proceeds collected are used directly by the Unit.

In our annual Flag Week for 2016 we raised over £4,000.

In recent years we have been fortunate to receive donations/grants from a number of organisations including Hillingdon local authority, Middlesex Freemasons, Uxbridge Royal Navy Association, HMS Ganges Association (West London Division)

Money collected through Flag Week  together with these donations has allowed a steady programme of refurbishment and renovation of our Unit HQ including new heating, new external lighting,  the updating of the male and female toilets, the renewal of the galley and the transformation of an old store-room into a new classroom for marine engineering.

In June, 2016 following exceptionally heavy rain the Unit was flooded which required the replacement of most of the flooring meaning that the cadets had to meet for 4 months in several local church halls. While most of the costs were covered by insurance, removal of the flooring revealed several areas that required additional work. All is now completed and in November, 2016 we are back in our Unit headquarters.
