Join the crew! Ahoy there! Can you make a difference?
Adult volunteers are needed by the Rushden Sea Cadets, who are hosting an open evening at the Drill Hall in Victoria Road on Tuesday November 3, to encourage local people to call in and find out more about helping them.
Volunteer Maurice Weight said: “The cadets are hosting the open evening with a view to recruiting volunteer adults to support the unit in its ambitions and aspirations. We have a number of volunteering opportunities, from committee members to instructor. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet some of the volunteers as well as to find out about the corps and the development opportunities it offers.”
“We need your help! We need volunteers who are happy to roll up their sleeves, get involved and make a huge positive difference to the lives of the young people we work with. We have lots of roles to match your skills and we offer training to help you gain more (you don’t have to be ex-navy).”
Every weekend across the UK there are thousands of young people involved in sea cadet activities – learning new skills that will give them a head start in life. Maurice added: “In fact, we work with 14,000 sea cadets aged between ten and 18 – and are the UK’s largest maritime youth charity, with a history dating back to 1856. In
Rushden, we meet at the Drill Hall in Victoria Road every Friday evening from 7pm-9pm.
“So, if you want to learn more, please pop down on the open evening. To register a place, email: email@example.com
“We look forward to meeting you!”
