Story

Our 55 plus Sea Cadets were absolutely devastated to receive the news that a fire had destroyed the boatshed along with all its contents.
Although some of the content will be covered by insurances there are items that will not be and we have two substantial ‘excess’ fees to pay when we claim on our insurances. There will also be an urgent need to provide alternative storage facilities once replacement equipment has been acquired.
The Wicksteed Park boating station was an historic part of the park and Oliver Wicksteed kindly permitted us to use part of it to store the majority of our Sea Cadet sailing equipment. All of this equipment is an instrumental part of the Sea Cadet journey, with the Cadets spending many summer evenings on the lake learning new skills of sailing, rowing and windsurfing.
As you can imagine all of our Cadets, Staff and parents are devastated at the loss. The Cadets get so much out of being on the water and have many memories of great times. This is huge shock to our unit.
We will do everything we can to replace the equipment lost in this tragic fire and with the help provided by your kind donations hopefully be in a position to start all of our boating activities by the 1st April next year. It will be a huge challenge but we are very confident that we can achieve it with your support.

Thank you very much inded. . .every penny is hugely appreciated.
800 Naval Air Squadron Kettering Sea Cadets.
