Fundraising for the cadets to directly benefit them covering the costs of the day-to-day running of the unit and boating station is of high priority, the average funds required over the year average out at £1000 per month (approx). Without fundraisers (usually made up of parents, family, friends, staff and general public donations) the money would not be raised consequently, there would be no possibility to continue providing a first class service to our current cadets and the future ones too. Plus we are aiming high to create a sustainable future through creating a parade ground and residential parking area on Tuthill, with the revenue created through this project will create more opportunities to modernise the facilities on offer.
Fundraisers are as valuable to our unit as the cadets and staff themselves. All need each other to thrive, succeed and progress, that is why we value every supporter no matter how big or small the contributions. Due to the training programme of the cadets and staff it is not always possible to include them in the fundraising plans, anyone can fundraise for us and we have various means of making your pleadges to us: Post us a cheque and cover letter to let us know how you raised the money (cheques made payable to 'Scarborough Sea Cadets', online via Just Giving and Ebay for Charities.
Parents and Friends supporters are called 'P&F' and a formal group has not been chaired for a number of years, this is mainly due to the commitment requirements that are off putting for a lot of people. But we would like to emphasis that with your combined support the young people will benefit directly from improved facilities and more opportunities to increase their skills through your efforts.
Some of our regular fundraising events that generate the biggest results are:
- Pancake Day
- Halloween Party
- Car Boot
- Ebay for Charities
- Our Secondhand Charity Bookshop in the Bolts
- Dragon Boat Race
- Seasonal Fairs (Xmas, Easter etc.)
We are willing to try new ideas such as joint fundraising ventures.
