The Tide Pirates Annual Charity Downwinder

You can make a difference by donating today to 1ST ST. PETER-IN-THANET/1ST BROADSTAIRS SEA SCOUT GROUP RN55.
We are a Sea Scout group based in Broadstairs, Thanet and were the very first scout troop founded in Thanet, in 1910. Today, we are one of the largest groups in Thanet, with waiting lists for all sections. We have three sections with capacity for 25 Beavers age 6-8, 36 Cubs age 8 10, and 50 Scouts age 10-14.

Our group enables young people to make new friends, have amazing adventures, and learn new valuable skills for life, and contribute to the community. Regardless of abilities or additional needs, our inclusive group is open to all, and has a positive impact on the mental health and wellbeing of not only our Young People but also all those adult Leaders and Young Leaders who volunteer too. We strive to give Young People the opportunities to grow in confidence, self-reliance, and build leadership skills in a safe, supportive, and fun environment.

We are currently fundraising to help towards the costs of setting up our new group boat store in Broadstairs harbour, for which we now having planning permission. This new store will allow our Group much easier access to the water and enable our Young People to spend more time on the water. We also need to replace some of our aging group equipment such as sails, outboard motors and to purchase more smaller sized buoyancy aids.
