On Saturday 19 July, the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity (RNRMC) and The Military Mutual attended and supported the annual HMNB Portsmouth Families Day. Friends and families of all Naval Base personnel, military and civilian, and HM Ships’ Companies had an opportunity to experience life within the Naval Base and on board HM Ships.
All visitors were entertained by live music, funfair attractions, sideshows, harbour tours and the many stands and stalls set up around the venue. This included the RNRMC stand featuring its popular mascot, Nelson the Cat and ‘spin the wheel’ game, with The Military Mutual, a financial services provider committed to doing what is right for our Armed Forces community, next door. The weekend was also a fantastic opportunity to announce Military Mutual as Silver Corporate Partners of the RNRMC, a new partnership for the charity.
Mandy Lindley, Director of Relationships and Funding at the Royal Navy & Royal Marines Charity, said:
Families days are really important to the wider naval community as it brings everyone together and makes them feel valued. The Charity is proud to support this event as it helps combat the isolation experienced by some families who are separated and aids morale.”
Major General Sir Sebastian Roberts, Chairman of The Military Mutual, said:
We are proud to be partnering with the RNRMC and the wider naval community at the annual HMNB Portsmouth Families Day. TMM is fully committed to delivering our promise ‘Together We Are Stronger’ by collaborating with such a great charity in supporting our Armed Forces, Veterans and their families.”
