Smartly presented Sea Cadets from Huddersfield turned out in force at Asda last month where several members helped to raise valuable donations towards the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal.
The Sea Cadets are no strangers to collecting, having sold poppies and pins during last year’s Poppy Appeal and in previous seasons. There was a good turn out of cadets, supported by the unit’s Chairperson, Lieutenant Commander RN (rtd) Judith Clarke and Commanding Officer, CPO (SCC) Kiran Kundi, along with Adult Instructors, Cadet Instructors, and Committee Members.
The Poppy Appeal raises money to help members of the Royal Navy, Army, Royal Air Force, Reservists, veterans and their families.
The Royal British Legion provides information, advice and guidance to help the Armed Forces community find and access the support they need. Although they are a national organisation, they work in local communities across the UK, delivering information, advice and support where it is needed most, including outreach services for the most vulnerable. Whether it is money worries, a seaside break with the family, careers advice after leaving the service, independent living or care in later life, they are there to help.

Whether at sea or on land Sea Cadets offers young people between 10 and 18 an environment where they can find confidence and inspiration, through nautical adventure. Across the UK 14,000 young people are challenging themselves and learning new skills based on the customs and traditions of the Royal Navy to give them the best possible head start in life.
