We are extremely grateful for the generous donation from the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve Officers’ Association (RNVR).
This means more boating opportunities for sea cadets, including a new boating hub in Wallasey and four RS21 keel boats for the national fleet. It also funds 132 RS Zests, 120 kayaks, micro adventure grants to increase boating opportunities for cadets, and a twin screw displacement vessel on the River Thames for training cadets and seafarers.
We plan to name one of our vessels in honour of RNVR and display plaques on the keel boats as a constant reminder of the association’s generosity.
Chairman of the RNVR Officers' Association, Simon Wilson, said: “We are very pleased to make these resources available to Sea Cadets investing in young people’s futures. Playing our part in boosting the confidence, inspiration and opportunities of cadets across the UK also means that our legacy will live on through them.”
