Kent Sea Cadets to Benefit from £10,000 Donation

Published on April 9th, 2014

800 Sea Cadets across Kent are one step closer to reaching their dream of an offshore voyage on the new 21st century Sea Cadets flagship, thanks to a £10,000 donation from The Roger De Haan Charitable Trust.

The donation goes towards building Sea Cadets a new flagship that will replace the current ship, TS Royalist, now over 40 years old and increasingly expensive to maintain. A flagship voyage is the pinnacle of the Sea Cadet experience and one which the charity wants to ensure future generations of Sea Cadets can benefit from. TS Royalist launched in 1971 taking over 30,000 cadets to sea in her lifetime.
