The Royal Naval Association is one of the many organisations of the Conference of Naval Associations (CONA); most Associations, their regional areas, or divisions, and local Branches raise funds for charity in the name of their organisation (e.g. the RNA’s chosen charity for 2015 is the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity). However, throughout the country a number of our members also undertake additional fundraising activities in support of our Armed Forces. The aim of this page is to highlight some of those forthcoming charity events and to help promote the work of individuals and groups in doing their own bit for charity.
Please visit this page on a regular basis and if you can, support our members in achieving their goals, thank you.
