Forty Naval Cadets were on hand to help at Chesalon Richmond on 10 October by refurbishing their grounds. The volunteering effort was part of the Australian Navy’s week-long International Fleet Review celebrations where approximately 40 visiting warships and 12 tall ships arrived in Sydney to commemorate the centenary of the first entry of the Royal Australian Navy’s Fleet into Sydney.

The cadets rolled up their sleeves to plant, weed, mulch and provide general maintenance of the gardens at Chesalon Richmond. Spruced up, the gardens will provide the 60 frail-aged residents much-needed enjoyment and an increased sense of wellbeing.

The Navy Cadets’ band was also there to entertain the residents with a rousing performance.

Cheryl Van Den Nieuwenhuizen, Manager of Chesalon Richmond, said the day was a wonderful opportunity for the Cadets to engage with the wider community. “It was so encouraging seeing young people getting involved and serving those who have gone before them – we really appreciated their fantastic contribution.”
