When Peterborough’s Sea Cadets were on the look-out for storage containers, our Nottingham branch were more than happy to come to their aid.
As part of one the UK’s oldest nautical youth charities, the Sea Cadets offer young people the chance to go to sea, learn to sail and do adventure training, plus get extra skills to give them a great head start in life.
The Cadets in Peterborough needed containers to store equipment for their new boating centre. On hearing of their plans, Mobile Mini were able to offer support through our community involvement programme by donating free hire for two storage containers.
The boating centre is dedicated to Lt (scc) Colin Marshall, Royal Naval Reserves Rtd in recognition of his 47 years in the Sea Cadet Service, who also officially opened the centre in November. Peterborough’s Mayor David Saunders, Councillor John Fox and special guest Para Olympian Gold Medalist James Fox were also in attendance of the grand opening.
Andy Tannock, Chairman of the Peterborough Sea Cadets said, “The containers are brilliant and provide much needed storage for the centre. We really pleased with the service that Mobile Mini have provided and are so grateful for their help”.
Mobile Mini’s Community Involvement Programme, offers free of charge storage container hire to non-profit or voluntary organisations, where Mobile Mini’s support can make a real difference.
All of our branches across the UK donate up to 10 containers each year free of charge (hire not to exceed 6 months) to worthy community causes. If you think that we can help then please give your nearest branch a call.
