PO Dave Goodwin and Parent Volunteers Christine Homewood and Mark Hill took some cadets on Saturday 15th March to the J24 depot for flood relief victims. The cadets had collected 5 shopping trolleys worth of cleaning materials, some of the items were kindly donated by Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs by way of Sea Cadet Parent Mark Hill. Christine is an existing FLAG (Flooding on the Levels Action Group) volunteer and came up with the idea of using the Sea Cadet e mail network to get cadets to bring materials in
The three junior cadets in the picture raised money for buying paintbrushes and deocaring materials by wearing plain clothes to sea cadets and paying a £1 for the privelege.
The cadets then visited Burrow Mump to view the extent of the flooding. This gave them a good understand of the nature of the problem. Community interface is a key part of the sea cadet curriculum.
