About the Project
We are looking to secure funding to buy a mini-bus. The cadetsender trend various functions including varius band engagements across the county (including parades such as remembrance day). We also take part in sailing and other sporting competitions such as football and need to transport cadets and equipment. Cadets also have access to offer shore trips which leave from Portsmouth so we again have to provide transport. Havino our own mini bus will be valuable to us. We have already secured some funding from local councillors and need to secure.further funding to secure the bus.
About the Charity
We are a volunteer youth group. We accept children from all backgrounds aged between 10 and 18. We are open 2 nights a week and provide sailing on Saturdays. Children can learn sailing skills and obtain nationally recognised sailing qualifications (we are a certified RYA centre). In addition we offer access to BTECH courses and D of E all levels. Although we are a uniformed group affiliated to the Royal Navy we are a stand alone charity responsible for our own running costs and travel. We are based in Bury St Edmunds and have cadets from the town and surrounding villages
