Fundraising

Charity Number - 1153100

901 Troop is an independent unit, entirely self funded and not sponsored by the MOD. Therefore we have to raise all our funding through taking part in events and obtaining grants. This money is then reinvested into the unit which then benefits the troop.

Most of the events that we participate in require the hard work of the cadets and commitment of the troop. For years now, we have attended annual events like Strumpshaw Steam Rally and Lions Santa Sleigh for which we receive funding in exchange for our hard work.

Donations for our fund raising events are greatly appreciated
Grants are a very important for the unit to gain large amounts of money for training and activities. They are put towards the band, cadet training aids and activities like sailing. However finding grants can be a problem as they are scarce and need researching.
If you know of any grants that would be beneficial to the unit, then please do not hesitate to contact someone from this link.
Even better, if you are willing to devote your time to the unit to look for grants then this would help us tremendously. Once again contact someone to arrange this and it can be discussed further on a training night.

Thank you in advance for any donations or help that you are willing to provide.
