The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity (RNRMC) is dedicated to supporting sailors, marines, and their families, all through their lives. The charity works closely with organisations such as Alabaré, which are dedicated to supporting homeless adults, young people, veterans and those with learning disabilities. Through the RNRMC's ongoing support and recent funding of over £22,000 the organisation continues to battle veteran homelessness.

Lieutenant Commander Alexander Miles RN has taken it upon himself to support both charities in their efforts to tackle homelessness amongst veterans. He shared with the RNRMC:

man running in an rnrmc vest “I have served in the RN for almost 24 years and have served on Submarines my entire career. I’m currently work at Navy Command HQ, HMS EXCELLENT in the FGEN FPLANS division. I have not been a naturally dedicated runner, but I have completed a few Ironman events, and most recently, I completed a 70-mile run from Carlisle to Newcastle in under 16 hours.

I have entered this event to try and raise money and awareness about Alabaré’s Homes for Veterans as well as the RNRMC, which I am passionate about.

I am going to RUN BRITANNIA from LEJOG (June 2024) in order to raise as much as I can to help beat and end homelessness and raise the awareness for Alabaré’s Homes for Veterans.

To achieve this event, I have planned bespoke events throughout the year to help me focus my training, and to ensure I put myself in the best possible shape/condition for the run next year.

Any donations would be much appreciated.”
