The Bridge Partnership

An opportunity for Corporate Friends to support our sailors, marines and their families.

The RNRMC is delighted to invite you to The Bridge Partnership which offers corporate friends the opportunity to work closely with the charity and pledge support towards its vision. The Bridge Partnership will provide companies with an official alliance with the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity.

Why Choose the RNRMC?

The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity is proud to support the men, women and children of the Royal Navy and Royal Marines family, ensuring that they get the recognition and practical help they deserve in return for their service. As the principal charity of the Royal Navy, we have a comprehensive understanding of where the need is greatest and deliver a co-ordinated solution to those we support.

“In 2016 our strategic partnership was underpinned by the signing of a Charter between the charity and the Second Sea Lord, Vice Admiral Sir Jonathan Woodcock KCB OBE. Working with our partners, we tackle a wide range of issues that people experience throughout their lives, from supporting those with relationship and financial difficulties to those affected by bereavement.”

There is nothing more akin to the sea, and to the Royal Navy and Marines, than Pusser’s Rum.  It was first introduced to Great Britain’s Royal Navy in 1655 as a substitute for beer and later become the daily ration to the sailors on board its ships. The daily ration was known as the ‘tot’, and its issue and the ritual that went with it, was one of the longest and unbroken traditions in the history of the sea.  The tradition ended on July 31, 1970, also known as Black Tot Day.  In September 1979, Company founder Charles Tobias, MBE, obtained permission from the Admiralty for the formula and to Commercialise the Pusser’s Rum brand.  It was then that Pusser’s made its first contribution to the RN “Sailor’s Fund” and has continued with its giving and various sponsorships ever since.  We are proud to be a Silver Corporate Partner this year and among other things look forward to sponsoring the Drinks Reception for the RNRMC Trafalgar Night Dinner at the Painted Hall, Royal Naval College, in October.

“Up Spirits” to all those who have served or have otherwise made a commitment to support this fine group of Charities
