To All Our Supporters

We would like to thank you

None of the work we do to support sailors, marines and their families would be possible without the kindness of generosity of our fundraisers, donors, corporate, trust and other supporters – and we are incredibly grateful for your time, effort and money. Sadly, we can’t thank everyone here, but this is just a selection of those who contributed in 2018.

Leave a gift in your will

Every time someone leaves a gift to the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity in their Will, they help us to ensure that the United Kingdom’s Naval family are supported, for life. Every gift, of every size, has a lasting impact. We are indebted to all those who choose to support us in this way.

If you are moved to support the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity, the most wonderful gift you could ever make to support the nation’s sailors, marines and their families won’t cost you a penny in your lifetime, but will help us transform lives in the future and for generations to come.

To start a conversation about leaving a gift in your Will, please contact Alasdair Akass, who’ll be happy to help you. or 023 9387 1538.
