Here at N2S, we like to help support organisations and charities wherever and however we can. Below are just some of the good causes we support on a local, national and international scale
This year the team at N2S have pledged to raised £10,000 for Macmillan, a charity close to our hearts.
On the 25th June, a group of N2S staff will be dusting off their bikes and cycle helmets to take part in the Suffolk Villages Charity bike ride, tackling anything from 25 – 100k around local Suffolk villages.
We also have a team taking part in the Thames Path Challenge on 9th September, where they have the option to walk up to 100km from Putney Bridge to Henley.
As well as these energetic challenges we have also been running bake sales, Easter and sweet raffles and a monthly bonus ball lottery.

Since it’s launch in 2002, the Tag Rugby Trust has grown and evolved into an organisation working in the UK and eight developing countries.
TRT uses rugby as a vehicle to “Build Futures” by providing relevant and challenging opportunities for children and adults alike. Sustainability and local ownership is central to TRT. We help to build the structures that will ensure long term sustainability of our programmes.
N2S works hard to support TRT with its wonderful projects. For example we recently provided several recycled computers to a community in Uganda which has enabled the schools to gain access to the internet and email. Providing computers to children in these schools is a completely life changing experience for them and it’s a truly worthy cause as part of a structured programme of education and sport in Africa.
Commando Spirit is an appeal on behalf of the RMCTF with a mission to raise £1m by 2014. At the heart of the appeal are The Commando Spirit Series of challenge events; once-in-a-lifetime experiences to test your mettle and give you a taste of what it means to be a Royal Marines Commando whilst raising serious funds for Royal Marines in need.
In 2012 our director and former Rugby World Cup winner Andy Gomarsall joined a brave band of Commando Spirit participants who descended into the world famous ‘bowl’ inside Twickenham Stadium. They did this whilst taking part in an exhilarating free abseil into the 82,000 seat venue. The exciting 39 metre drop tested the nerves of even the most fearless of volunteers.
All money raised went to the Commando Spirit Appeal on behalf of the Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund.
In 2011/2012, Andrew Gomarsall held a testimonial year to help raise funds for The C Group and RPA. You can find out more about the charities below or visit Andrew’s official site (www.gomars.co.uk) for more information about his testimonial year.
Founded in May 2008, the purpose of the C Group is to raise awareness and generate practical support throughout the business community for Royal Marines, particularly those who are suffering the long-term effects of injuries sustained on operations.
