The Royal Marines Charity
Royal Marines have always been the first to understand, first to adapt and respond and the first to overcome, that’s the Commando Mindset but today Royal Marines and their families are fighting battles they cannot win alone. The Commando Mindset isn’t always enough, with your help the Royal Marines Family will win their battles. We are the Royal Marines’ own Charity and are uniquely placed to understand, respond and react, enabling Royal Marines and their families to overcome their challenges including life changing injury, life limiting illness, mental disability, transition to civilian life and even poverty.

My page:


I am delighted to be leading the Descent of the Shard.  I am also very proud, as the Chairman of The Outward Bound Trust, of the work the Trust undertakes with young people to give them challenge through adventure.  The Royal Marines are also close to my heart as a part of the Royal Navy and whilst the work they do in support of our nation is beyond any question; I am delighted to be joining with The Royal Marines and their Charitable Trust Fund to be able to raise not only awareness for the two Charitable organisations we are Descending the Shard for but also in raising the necessary money and support for both organisations to be able to continue our vital work.
