Yorkshire Coast 10K Cash Turns into Rowing Challenge

The team behind the Yorkshire Coast 10k run are chancing their arms at rowing later as Scarborough Sea Cadets put a donation to good use.

Scarborough Athletic club have donated some of the money raised from this years 10K event to Scarborough Sea Cadets.

As Danny Walls from the Athletic club explains the cadets quickly turned the cash into a challenge.

Danny says it's great to see the money making a difference to a local group in a sporting area even if he doesn't fancy his chances in the fitness challenge.

The Sea Cadet unit in Scarborough provides a range of activities for over 100 local young people, they meet in an old church and community centre formerly known as St. Thomas’s in the old town of Scarborough, situated in East Sandgate.  The Grade 2 listed building dates back to 1839.

Last year the Cadets launched a £50,000 appeal to help fund major structural repairs to the building.

Danny says being able to support the group has been very rewarding.

Today's rowing challenge will be taking place at the Sea Cadets building at 8pm. Danny says it will take the form of a relay event.

The donation to the Cadets is not the only local cause benefiting from teh 10k cash. Danny says they have also been able to support a project at the Rainbow Centre.
