Sea Cadets is launching a lottery this week, offering people the opportunity to support the charity while being in with the chance of winning money.
Entry to the scheme, run by Unity, costs just £1 per entry. The money will go where it is most needed – whether that is renovating buildings damaged by floods, or funding offshore voyages for cadets.
Sea Cadets gives young people a new perspective, helping to boost their confidence and self-belief through water-based and land-based adventure. Young people aged between 10 and 18 can enjoy numerous activities and earn nationally-recognised qualifications, supported by 9,000 volunteers.
The draw takes place every Saturday, and those who sign up are allocated a six-digit Unity lottery number. A random winning number is drawn. Players can win up to £25,000, plus £2,500 for Sea Cadets, if they match six digits, while prizes of £1,000, £25 and £5 are also up for grabs. All winners are notified and prizes posted automatically.
