Exmouth Sea Cadets received a donation of £2,000 from Devonshire Freemasons to go towards their new HQ

Exmouth Sea Cadets have received £2,000 from the Devonshire Freemasons, which will go towards its new HQ.

Worshipful Brother Dr Reuben Ayres presented the cheque to Tony Griffin, chairman of the cadets’ management committee.

Dr Ayres said: “Tony and the team have worked tirelessly to raise the funds required to commission, build and equip this wonderful new facility.

“The Exmouth Sea Cadet Corps is a valuable resource for the young folk of Exmouth and provides a range of activities and projects which nurture and develop their physical and mental abilities. We’re delighted to support this hard-working, committed team.”

Mr Griffin said: “The support from the Devonshire Freemasons has made a great difference to our funding deficit, particularly when our final bills have to be paid.”
