Sea cadets take to the airwaves to keep afloat

A group of Wirral sea cadets who have raised hundreds of pounds for a cancer charity have taken to the airwaves to keep their own organisation afloat.

Lt Dave Wynne from Bebington Sea Cadets and his wife Karen, an outpatient at Clatterbridge, called in to the studio following their fundraiser for Macmillan.

Dave told his friend and presenter Steve Evans how they need committee members and other people to help with maintenance of their New Ferry headquarters.

Each sea cadet unit, which takes members aged between 10 and 18, is a registered charity which needs to raise its own funds to stay open.

However the group still finds time to hold events for other good causes and raised more than £200 for Macmillan as part of the world's biggest coffee morning.

Dave, who first joined the sea cadets in 1973, later served in the Falkland Islands as a marine engineer in the Royal Navy rising in rank to able seaman before returning to the cadets after injury cut short his career.
