The West Country 100 Dinner – A Commando Night

14/11/2017

Friday 10th November saw some of the West Country’s prominent business leaders gather to support The Royal Marines Charity and share an evening of fine food and captivating entertainment from The Band of HM Royal Marines at the Officers' Mess, Commando Training Centre Royal Marines, and Lympstone, kindly supported by Mundy Roofing.

The West Country 100 Club is an exclusive group of like-minded businesses committed to raise a minimum of £1,000 per year on behalf of The Royal Marines Charity. Members enjoy access to exclusive events and the opportunity to display the West Country 100 club official logo on their websites and marketing materials.

Donations are still coming in, and the list of new members of the West Country 100 Club is still growing, but we are delighted to announce 16 new members to the West Country 100. We forecast that a brilliant £27,000 was pledged on the night.

Guests were treated to some brilliant entertainment from the Royal Marines band, a live auction hosted by Graham Barton and an after dinner speech from triple round the world sailor, Conrad Humphreys.

Attendees were also able to hear first-hand from those that The Royal Marines Charity have been able to assist. Firstly from Becky Rodgers, who the charity helped to support after her medical discharge from the Royal Marines Band. This was followed by an interview with Rock 2 Recovery founder and former Royal Marine, Jamie Sanderson, of which earlier this year The Royal Marines Charity announced further support to Rock 2 Recovery in their vital & outstanding work.

The Royal Marines Charity would like to thank everyone that attended and helped to support the Royal Marines family. We’d also like to give a big thank you to our principal supporter for the evening, Mundy Roofing.
