This was a chance for the cadets to celebrate all of their achievements and hard work over the last year in front of a full house of friends and family.

After demonstrations of drill, seamanship and teamwork (with some help from audience ‘volunteers’), the main event of the evening was the presentation of awards.

In addition to the perpetual cups and trophies received by the top cadets, multiple badges and certificates covering First Aid and Mountain Biking among other exciting activities were received by cadets of all ages.

Each Sea Cadet unit is an independent charity and Lisburn Unit needs to raise funds to allow it to support our local young people - as an example of costs a minimum of £1000 per year is needed to keep it on the road so all support will be very welcome.
