The RNOC has won a £1,000 Movement for Good award from Ecclesiastical Insurance Group thanks to nominations from the public. The Charity is one of 500 winners in specialist insurer Ecclesiastical’s Movement for Good awards, which is giving £1million to charities this summer.
This welcome donation will support our diverse range of beneficiaries of all ages from across the Naval Officer family who rely on our assistance in the form of regular grants and annuities.
The money will be used to relieve hardship and debt, help towards respite and care home fees, and assist with funeral costs. Above all it will allow the Charity to help lessen the impact of Covid and to continue to support where it is most needed, which it has done successfully for more than 275 years.
Commander Mike Goldthorpe BEM Royal Navy, CEO of the RNOC, says:
“This funding means a great deal to the Charity and even more to those families and individuals it will support. The donation will help us continue to assist those in need across the Naval Officer family now and in the future.
We would like to thank all our supporters for taking the time to nominate the RNOC and to recognise the Charity’s valuable work and its lasting impact. Please be assured that this extra funding will be faithfully applied.”
