As the leading charity supporting the Royal Marines community, along with our partner and brothers-in-arms of The Royal Marines Charity, it’s easy to focus on the practical, financial and other welfare support and services we provide. Less obvious, but every bit as vital, is the camaraderie, friendship and comfort we offer to the RM family, often at some of life’s most challenging moments. This can be anything from helping partners and children settle in to a new location following a move, standing alongside those who’ve been bereaved, encouraging people as they face their own personal struggles, or spending a few hours reliving old times with veterans.
That idea of warmth and caring in a distinctly RM context is neatly captured in this month’s draw prize, provided once again by our wonderful friends at the RM Shop. The Royal Marines ‘Booty’ Bear is a top-quality plush teddy dressed in authentic mixed-terrain pattern uniform, complete with accurate ‘Royal Marines Commando’ flashes on the sleeves; naturally, he’s also earned his green beret with its globe-and-laurel badge. Booty Bear is available in two sizes: your prize is the larger, at a statuesque 9" tall. In the spirit of giving, he’d make a lovely gift for a family member; he could also be a great talking-point sitting on your desk or dashboard – or a faithful oppo who’s always there to listen and won’t talk back at you!
