International adventurer and survivalist Bear Grylls is offering two lucky fans the opportunity of a lifetime to help mark the 10th birthday of The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity. The competition winner and a friend will take part in an official Bear Grylls Survival Course in Wales, catching wild game and foraging for food, learning core survival skills and sleeping out under the stars in a shelter they have built themselves.

After you work up an appetite you will get the chance to grab a bite to eat with Bear around the camp fire and ask the internationally renowned adventurer for his personal survival tips. Alongside the ultimate prize, competition entrants also have access to a unique collection of branded survival merchandise such as foldable flasks, t-shirts and signed books.

“We at the RNRMC are delighted to be able to offer two lucky winners such an incredible experience. Bear’s love of adventure has made him an internationally recognised role model and a fantastic ambassador for the Royal Navy where he holds honorary ranks, both as a Lieutenant Commander in the Royal Naval Reserve and a Lieutenant Colonel in the Royal Marines Reserve. The money raised will go towards supporting vital projects that ensure that our sailors, marines and their families and valued and supported for life.” Alasdair Akass, Director of Marketing, Communications and Fundraising, Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity.
