A group of Havering sea cadets is set to benefit from the generosity of a supermarket’s customers for the next twelve months.

The Hornchurch & Upminster Sea Cadets were officially announced as the charity of the year for Sainsbury’s in Hornchurch High Street on Friday.

Havering Mayor Cllr Linda Van den Hende was on hand to congratulate the cadets, and formally launch the fundraising before a number of the cadets spent a few hours packing bags for early weekend shoppers.

Store manager Tony Burke said: “I’m pleased to have the sea cadets as the charity of the year and hope they’ll be able to raise lots of funds over the year.”

If you are interested in joining or want to know more about what the sea cadets do you can email the unit on hornchurchseacadets@hotmail.co.uk or speak to them on one of their many event days at the supermaket throughout the year.
