  • Need

    Need

    Our young people travel to various events, courses and training events using the bus, which is now becoming an issue due to the bus failing on a regular basis. We were recently honoured in taking 15 cadets to Westminster Abbey where they took part in the 70th VE Day commemoration Service.

    Perhaps you are a large company that is looking to sponsor a local youth charity then this would be an ideal opportunity for you to do so as we would be happy to display your company logo on our minibus.

    Solution

    By seeking donations in the usual way from activities like fetes and bag packing for customers in supermarkets. We are also approaching local companies and business' as well as Trust Funds for help.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    The aim is to raise £15,000.00 towards buying a new minibus.

    Activities

    » Hold events , attend fetes, bag packing in supermarkets, approach trust funds and local companies and business for donations and sponsorship.

    We will demonstrate our success by the more events our cadets and staff attend and the competition results and course passes they gain over the lifetime of our new minibus.


  • Impact

    Impact

    We are passionate about the life changing experiences we provide our cadets and want as much support as possible to continue and then expand what we have done so successfully for more than 70 years at Dartford.

    Risk

    The risk of not seeking adequate funding is the only risk as would not be able to deliver our goal of purchasing a new minibus.
