REDDITCH and Bromsgrove Sea Cadets 595 have received a £1,000 cash boost from Persimmon Homes South Midlands.

The grant was awarded as part of the firm’s Community Champion scheme.

The money will help buy equipment and extras to train the cadets in catering and engineering.

Lieutenant James Sanders, who applied for the funding on behalf of the Sea Cadets, said: “Our aim is to provide our cadets, aged between 10 and 18, with the best head start in life.

“We help young people gain skills in sailing, water sports, adventure training, engineering and much more.

“With more equipment we can increase what we teach and ensure that they get the best training environment possible.

“We are extremely thankful.”
