The Sea Cadet Corps is a national youth organisation for young people between the age of 10 and 18 which aims to help young people towards responsible adulthood by encouraging valuable personal attributes and high standards of conduct using a nautical theme based on the customs of the Royal Navy.

Each individual Sea Cadet Unit is an independent charity, which must be fully self-sufficient in terms of funding, a wide range of activities both waterborne and shore based. Run by volunteers in their spare time it can be a constant challenge to provide Unit HQ, minibus, boats and other state-of-the-art equipment that young people in the 21st century tend to take for granted.

With this mind, Decorquip was pleased to arrange donation of a made to measure roller blind for the door to the maindeck of the unit HQ. With winter approaching the blind will not only improve the overall appearance but also prevent heat loss during the winter months. The roller blind was a perfect fit, simple to install and came in ‘battleship grey’ to match the existing decor. Unit Management Team Chair Mrs Sues Stevens commented ‘Keeping the Unit HQ well maintained and neat and tidy is part of my role and I was delighted to receive the Support of Decorquip and very pleased with the ease of installation, quality of the product and final appearance’.

‘Decorquip’s generous support will help Southwark Sea Cadets maintain the building in good condition and continue to provide training opportunities for young people in South East London,’ said David Bradbury, Southwark Sea Cadets Officer in Charge.

‘We are impressed, having found the blind simple to install and the service and generosity of decorquip has been excellent. Funding is a constant problem and support of this nature is an immense help.’
