ENERGETIC Evesham Sea Cadets travelled the distance from John O’Groats to Lands End without leaving the Vale to celebrate their silver anniversary.

The determined cadets took part in a special ‘Run Row Ride’ event throughout the town, to complete the famous 874 mile route on Saturday (July 4).

The team walked, rowed and cycled at sites including Evesham Country Park, Tescos, Morrisons, Riverside Shopping Centre, Evesham town centre and Evesham Leisure Centre over eight hours.

Leading Cadet, Grace Bradley said: “There were roughly 50 cadets and staff covering all the venues, who took part swapping shifts and gave support to celebrate our 25 year anniversary.

“It was a great day. Thank you for all the support we’ve had.”

Donations collected from the event will go towards funding the unit to help pay for life jackets, heating, new oars for pulling boats and enable vital health and safety upgrades.
