Pedal power raises over £300

Sixteen Buxton Sea Cadets and eight parents completed a sponsored bicycle ride on the Monsal Trail, riding the 29 mile return journey from Blackwell Mill to Hassop and raising more than £300 for the building fund for their new extension.

This fundraising event was made possible by the generosity of the owners of Blackwell Mill Cycle Hire, Cheryl and Simon Ashton, who loaned their bikes to the cadets free of charge. Donations are still welcome..

And there’s still chance to vote for the Cadet Unit in the NATWEST Community Force Competition and win them a £6,000 prize.

Latest voting returns show that they do have a real chance of winning. You can vote at or vote by phone by dialling 0800 2100 246.
