REORG works for the rehabilitation of serving military and veterans, through physical activities and sports such as boxing and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
Another Royal Marines Charity project, which is helping former military personnel relocate to the construction business – after the ‘downing’ in military service – comes from a partnership with Morgan Sindall’s office.
Veterans are encouraged to consider a career in the construction industry, which can rely on the talent of 14,000 military personnel who leave the military each year, They get recognized for their leadership skills, teamwork, and management project.
This partnership has allowed several Marines to secure internships in major works throughout the region, promoting excellent career opportunities available in the industry
“In the Southwest, our partnership with The Royal Marines Charity has provided service leaders with the opportunity to get a first taste of working on a great work. Initiatives like this one,” said Andy Duff, Managing Director of Morgan Sindall. Allow us to raise awareness for what can offer a career in the construction industry for those coming from the military. “

3. Hijau – an Indonesian adjective, which describes the color ‘emerald green’
4. André – Malay for ‘bright, brilliant, splendid’
5. Eko – ‘first’ in Javanese
6. Satu – Indonesian for ‘one’, hoping that there will be ‘two’, ‘three’ etc in the future!

Closing the news of the week, Durrell invites everyone to visit the three new residents of Jersey Zoo.
Visayan warty pigs are a species that comes from the Philippines and under threat of extinction, leaving only about 200 individuals in the wild.
They used to live on several islands in the Philippines, but today they are restricted to only two – Blacks and Panay. Unfortunately, the species is rapidly declining due to deforestation and poaching.
This Easter weekend, audiences will be able to see the newcomers to the zoo for the first time since arriving in Jersey.
Updates for the week are here but keep following the Portal Henry Cavill to learn all about Durrell and the Royal Marines Charity.
