Exmouth Sea Cadets are looking forward to expanding their adventures on the water, thanks to a £500 donation from us towards a new support vehicle.
The group offers life-changing skills to those between the ages of 10 and 18, with hundreds of local young people benefiting from vocational qualifications and social skills thanks to their involvement. Our sponsorship will increase the safety of the activities that the cadets take part in, allowing their boats to be launched and retrieved from the water as well as to transport their boats to other locations for training and competitions.
Anthony Griffin, Chairman of Exmouth Sea Cadets, said: “We’re so grateful to Taylor Wimpey for this kind donation that will go towards a new 4x4 support vehicle which will both improve safety for our cadets and allow us to travel further afield. If required by emergency services, our boats and crews will now also be available for disaster or emergency relief. Donations of this kind are extremely impactful and as we rely entirely on donations, our work would not be possible without sponsorships such as Taylor Wimpey’s.”
Melissa Langton, Sales and Marketing Director at Taylor Wimpey Exeter, said: “The work that we do at Taylor Wimpey is about so much more than building homes. We’re also committed to giving back to the communities in which we build with donations to groups that dedicate their time to making a difference in their local area. We’re very proud to donate to Exmouth Sea Cadets and wish them the best of luck in all future endeavours.”
