The Hornchurch and Upminster Sea Cadet unit has been named as Elm Park Florists’ charity of the month.
The unit is set to get a massive boost thanks to customers of the Station Parade shop.
A spokesman for the sea cadets said: “It is always good to have support from local business.
“As a self funded charity we have to provide everything for the unit, equipment for training and the premises to operate from.
“Fundraising is a major part of the committee’s tasks and all help is always much appreciated.”
It is part of the the shop’s ABC giving scheme, which was launched in October last year to support good causes and charities every month.
The scheme sees customers making a donation into a wishing well.
Customers can also get the chance to win a bouquet of flowers.
