The Fraserburgh Sea Cadets is investing in a new harbour facility after receiving a donation from a North Sea oil company.

The Broch Sea Cadets has been awarded £2,000 to replace their portakabin at Sandhaven harbour by oil producers Nexen Petroleum UK Limited.

The facility currently provides the cadets with changing facilities and classroom space.

Craig Trail, Commanding Officer at Sea Cadets in Fraserburgh, said: “We’re extremely grateful to receive this generous donation from Nexen.

“It means we can replace the unit’s much-needed Portakabin at the harbour, where we plan and run a range of nautical adventures and training for our cadets.

“All of which is to help the youngsters learn new skills that can be applied throughout their lives and boost self-confidence in a fun and interactive way.”

The Fraserburgh Sea Cadets currently has over 30 members ranging from 10 to 17 years old.

Francesca Ray, Nexen’s Donations Committee Chairperson, said: “By providing new and interesting outdoor experiences, the Sea Cadets really supports and makes a positive difference to young people across the UK.”
