Project Semaphore wins national award!

As one of the Royal Naval Association’s flagship initiatives, we were delighted to come top in the People’s Choice poll at the Soldiering On Awards. Thousands of individuals and organisations were nominated for the 13 awards, and the short-listed candidates gave judges a tough job to select the worthy winners. Project Semaphore won in recognition of a group that has provided a significant contribution in support of the Armed Forces community.

RNA General Secretary, Bill Oliphant said: “Project Semaphore is a perfect example of the ethos of today’s Royal Naval Association. A need was identified, funding was secured and Sarah, with a dedicated team of volunteers, has managed the project through to the success it is today. Not only does it make life easier and more rewarding for our veterans, but it brings the whole Naval

family together for the greater good, reinforcing the RNA watchword of ‘once Navy, always Navy. I am delighted that the project, and Sarah’s role in developing it, have been recognised in such a prestigious awards ceremony.”
