HMS Neptune Medical Centre (HMNB Clyde) recently benefitted from a Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity (RNRMC) grant as part of a Divisional Day outing.

The aim of Divisional Days, a requirement by the Royal Navy, is for command to filter down information to members of a division, or unit, by giving presentations on certain subjects. Such subjects include information about naval pay and charges, ranging to more personal issues, such as the provision of forces family housing.

On completion of the divisional aspect of the day it is normally tradition to partake in some fun or rigorous team activity.

The activity the Medical Centre team chose was a naturally sedate affair of course…. Paintballing at Delta Force Paintballing, Glasgow.

After a quick and easy application to the Charity’s grants team, medical centre staff were pleased to see that the money was received within a matter of days.

The day has been heralded as a great success, with everyone participating enjoying themselves – despite the bruising afterwards.

Messages of thanks

Medical Assistant Tom Laws, who wrote to the RNRMC after the event, thanked both the RNRMC and the Delta Force team for the trip.

“The staff at Delta Force were excellent, even upgrading our guns to the M16 rifles and giving us extra ammunition for free instead of the normal cost of £20 extra per person,” he said.

“HMS Neptune Medical Centre staff would [also] like to say a huge thank you to The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity for all their help and support.”
