Help “Raise the Roof” with your fundraising knowhow

Fundraising volunteer needed for Reading Sea Cadets (TS Jervis Bay) in RG30

Sea Cadets Reading have been based a Brock Barracks since 1966 and thanks to a huge fundraising effort, after the destruction by fire of their old HQ in 1982, have a purpose built building on the barracks site. Unfortunately, due to structural damage, the unit has been unable to parade in the building since 2014. They are now seeking to raise the funds to enable them to get back into their proper home.
