The Windsor and Eton Sea Cadets took another step towards securing the lease on its T.S. Windsor Castle home after the group was awarded £1,000 from the Greenredeem recycling rewards scheme.
The scheme, run by the Greenredeem organisation, sees Royal Borough residents rewarded with points every time they recycle.
Residents were given the choice of donating their points to charity initiatives, with the top five projects receiving £1,000 from the Royal Borough.
The sea cadets finished fifth in this quarter’s scheme and were subsequently awarded the cash prize.
Gareth Johns, officer in charge of the Windsor and Eton Sea Cadets, said: “This award of funds is particularly special to us as we’ve received such tremendous support from our cadets, friends, families and the wider public.”
The sea cadets need to raise £50,000 to pay for a 125-year lease for its base in Stovell Road from the Royal Borough by March next year or risk losing its home.
