Situation

Due to COVID 19 the RNOC has seen a major reduction in income and anticipates an increased demand in financial assistance and support among its wide range of beneficiaries over the next few months and years.

Solution

Sister organisation, the Association of Royal Navy Officers (ARNO) launched its first fundraising campaign in July to mark its centenary and to help support the Charity during this time of shortfall. Further fundraising initiatives, including the Big Give Christmas Challenge, will aim to build on support from our members and the wider community. By working closely in partnership, ARNO’s fundraising activity will directly support the RNOC.
