Onboard competition proves a winner

Onboard competition proves a winner

20/02/2013

The crew of Artful (Astute Class Submarine) have won first place in the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity Payroll Giving competition. The boat saw an impressive 83.72% increase in the number crew members signing up to the scheme in just three months and the money they have received will be used towards a team-building Easter event for the crew.

Once people here found out about the benefits of getting involved, they were pleased to sign up.

The boat saw an impressive 83.72% increase in the number crew members signing up to the scheme in just three months and the money they have received will be used towards a team-building Easter event for the crew.

Artful Writer (SM) Grant Weaver said their impressive result was down to organising a challenge between the Junior Rates, Senior Rates and the Wardroom to see who came top of the sign-ups chart (The JRs won overall, with the Logistics and Communications departments both having 100% sign-up).

Grant said:

“Every month, we displayed the percentages that each mess had reached and that really got the competition going.

"Everyone who joined the boat and came into the office for paperwork went out with a sign-up form in their hand, and there were lots of posters everywhere publicising the scheme as well.”

“In my previous unit I worked with someone who was a big RNRMC supporter so I already knew about the great work the charity does with people who are finding things tough.

"Once people here found out about the benefits of getting involved, they were pleased to sign up.”

 Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity

 
The RNRMC was established by the Navy Board in 2007 to provide a single focus for charities that support Naval Service personnel.

The charity exists to provide a better quality of life for serving and former Naval Service personnel.

This includes the Royal Navy, Royal Marines, Maritime Reserves, QARNNS (Queen Alexandra's Royal Naval Nursing Service), and the Royal Fleet Auxiliary and former members of the Women’s Royal Naval Service.
