We take this opportunity to welcome two new volunteers to the Newcastle East Sea Cadets family. Congratulations to Michael Metcalf who was elected at our AGM as Chair (L), and Alan Hall who was elected as President (R).
Prior to becoming Chair, Michael worked in Television for over 30 years, he now spends his time involved with several charities, including Rotary, The Make A Wish Foundation and Northumbria Coalition Against Crime where he is a mentor and Ambassador for the Charity.
Alan is a retired businessman who specialised in the field of human resources working with many manufacturing companies in the North East and Yorkshire. His view is that it is important to try to give something back by supporting charitable activities. He is Immediate Past President of Ponteland Rotary and said he feels privileged to have been elected as President of Newcastle East Sea Cadets. Alan is married to Marian & has five children and three grandchildren.
With Michael and Alan's support and guidance, we will continue to strive to give young people from our region the very best head start in life through nautical adventure and fun.
If you, like Michael and Alan, want to volunteer with us we have plenty of roles to match your skills. If you are interested to find out more, please get in touch.
