Long-standing relationship

Explaining the relationship ahead of the presentation, Gary Rogalskik, President and CEO of Pusser’s Rum said: “We have made annual donations to the RNRMC since 1980, and are delighted to once again be handing over a generous cheque to support the Charity and indeed our friends within the Royal Navy. We know the funds will be put to very good use.”

Due to Pussers’ close historical connection with the sailors of the Royal Navy (more specifically the issuing of the ‘tot’ of rum on board ships); the donation will used to fund activity that enhances the well-being, and boosts the morale, of personnel across the naval service be they sailors, submariners or Royal Marines.  

Receiving the cheque, Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity Chief Executive Robert Robson said: “We are most grateful to Pusser’s Rum for their continued support. This generous donation will enable the Charity to improve the quality of life for Naval Service personnel, especially those who are undertaking operational duties away from home.”
