A tide of celebrations for sea cadets with £1,000 win

29 June 2017

A group of sea cadets is celebrating this month after being gifted £1000 from Persimmon Homes.

Stratford Sea Cadets, which trains boys and girls aged ten to 18 years in the ways of the Royal Navy and how to be a good citizen, has received the donation from the Persimmon Homes Community Champions scheme.

Deborah Carvill from the group said: “We were all ecstatic to learn that we had been given this gift from Persimmon. Since last year all of our cadets have put their efforts into fundraising to buy a yole or rowing boat as it is more commonly known, through activities such as a ferret racing evening and bag packing at a local supermarket on Christmas Eve. This latest donation means we finally have enough money to purchase the yole and offer our cadets the chance to gain rowing qualifications with our instructors.”

Carol Selway, Head of Sales for Persimmon Homes South Midlands said: “It’s exciting to be able to support this unique cause, helping young people build not only everyday skills, but also enjoy activities that are both fun and a little different. Persimmon is dedicated to supporting the communities it builds in and this is what our scheme is all about, supporting grass roots causes to grow and continue to enrich the lives of those who take part in them. I really would encourage any charities and groups looking for funding to apply to the scheme for their chance to receive up to £1000 match-funding for their own cause.”
