NEWYEAR, NEW CHAL­LENGE

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION -

MARTIN COLES CEO Sea Cadets

HAVE you made your New Year’s res­o­lu­tion yet? If the an­swer is no, why not con­sider tak­ing on a chal­lenge in aid of youth char­ity Sea Cadets?

For the first time, we are thrilled to have places avail­able for a whole host of ex­cit­ing char­ity chal­lenges.

The money you raise could re­ally make a dif­fer­ence, as 93p in ev­ery £1 that we re­ceive goes di­rectly to our valu­able work with young peo­ple.

Sea Cadets helps 14,000 10- to 18-yearolds, in 400 com­mu­ni­ties across the UK, to see the world with con­fi­dence, to de­velop self­be­lief and skills for life.

Our char­ity chal­lenges are a team ef­fort be­tween you and us – we of­fer you sup­port as you pre­pare and train for your chal­lenge, while you will be help­ing thou­sands of young peo­ple across the UK through your fundrais­ing.

We have sport­ing chal­lenges avail­able such as the Pru­den­tial RideLon­don and the Royal Parks Half-Marathon, both de­signed to push you to the limit.

The Snow­don Triple Chal­lenge awaits those who fancy a tough and ex­cit­ing multi-ac­tiv­ity trial, while as­pir­ing sailors may en­joy a day on the So­lent with our Mar­itime In­dus­try Re­gatta.

If you would like to make a trip abroad, take a look at the Zam­bezi River Chal­lenge.

Not one for the faint­hearted, you will pad­dle your way along the bor­der with Namibia, Botswana and Zim­babwe, steadily head­ing for Vic­to­ria Falls where you will raft the most tem­pes­tu­ous rapids in the world.

If you are in­ter­ested in any of these chal­lenges and would like to help raise vi­tal funds for Sea Cadets, please email events@ms-sc.org.
