The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity (RNRMC) has partnered with Naval Service Family and People Support (NS FPS) to develop weekly competitions and activities for Naval families to take part in during the lockdown period.
Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic NS FPS staff have taken their work online to actively engage with Service families throughout the UK and Overseas. With Community buildings closed a new project has been launched with the support of RNRMC – Virtual Community Activities.
This project includes weekly creative competitions (with prize vouchers funded by the RNRMC), a fortnightly quiz and community chat sessions which are held within the Local Naval Service Facebook Groups, Naval Service Commonwealth Network and a New Virtual Community Activity Group which has members from across the UK and Overseas.
The weekly competitions are run through the NS FPS regional Facebook groups. To take part in the competition and be in with a chance of winning up to £50 worth of Amazon vouchers you need to join your local NS FPS Facebook group. Links to the groups can be found below. Alternatively, you can join the 'NS FPS Community Activities' group.
