Summer Active with Sea Cadets

Summer Active with Sea Cadets

In August the Summer Active programme has seen 2,059 Cadets return to boating in paddlesports, rowing, kayaking, and sailing sessions. With participation of 150 units across 17 venues.

Well done to all cadets who took part and the volunteers and instructors who made this Summer Active! Doing what Sea Cadets does best back on the water.

Snapped is a junior cadet Dinghy Sailing, taken at the last day of Summer Active at the Cheddar Reservoir boating hub.

Hear from parents who got in touch to tell us about their children’s experiences boating:

My son had an absolute blast out on the water and is properly tired for the first time this summer..... 
He has missed all the cadet activity so much. “ Charlie, Weymouth. 
 
 “Thank you so much for today. You've put in a huge amount of effort to get this going, even more than we realised - and we are so very grateful. “ Karen, Glastonbury.

Flitwick volunteers fundraising after vandalism

Flitwick volunteers fundraising after vandalism

Locally 60 young people from Flitwick and Ampthill attend their local Sea Cadets unit.

You can imagine their shock when they found out during lockdown their local unit was attacked by vandals. Causing extreme damage to their unit minibus, which takes them on boating and camping trips. On top of this, every window was broken in the unit, adding thousands of pounds of damages to repair. 

That's where Katharine Ward, JC Dominic and OC Nathanael stepped in to urgently fundraise for their unit. They took to their bikes to do the Virtual RideLondon, Cycling the comparable distance of Surrey - London, in their local area. 
 
Sea Cadets' units are small charities in their own right who rely on donations from their community to keep running for young people locally. To show your support to Flitwick unit visit their fundraising page here. 

Katharine said: "Flitwick and Ampthill gives young people a place to belong, learn and grow. The unit is staffed by local volunteers who work incredibly hard to provide this. I am shocked that people out there would want to cause damage to an organisation that are working so hard to do good for young people."
