Exmouth Sea Cadets have received a financial boost thanks to county Freemasons.
The cheque for £2,000 brings the total given to the cadets during the last few years to £4,250, and will help with the cadets’ final payments towards the cost of their new headquarters.
Making the presentation, Reuben Ayres, Devonshire Freemasons Provincial Charity Steward, said: “I am delighted to present this cheque for £2,000 to the Exmouth Sea Cadets.
“Management committee chairman] Tony Griffin and the team have worked tirelessly to raise the funds required to commission, build and equip this wonderful new facility in Exmouth.
“The Exmouth Sea Cadets are a very valuable resource for the young folk of Exmouth.
“The Devonshire Freemasons are delighted to support this very hard working and committed team.”
Mr Griffin said: “The support from the Devonshire Freemasons has made a great difference to our funding deficit particularly at this late stage when our final bills have to be paid.”
