Social enterprise: Canvas Works

RNRMC logo

We are very excited to announce a new partnership with the Royal Navy & Royal Marine Charity, producing a range of bags from upcycled Royal Navy life rafts.

The new range is made almost entirely from decommissioned Royal Navy life rafts that would have otherwise ended up in a landfill.

“Our collaboration with RNRMC around the new RNRMC x Canvas Works product range is so exciting on many levels. Not only is it a fantastic charity partnership, a way for the two organisations to support each other’s goals, but also a way for both charities to raise funds, while also doing our bit towards protecting the environment.” Paul Napthine, Oarsome Chance CEO

Launching 27 April 2023, the money raised from the new collection will be donated back to the RNRMC and Oarsome Chance. Look out for the new product range coming soon to the RNRMC online shop.

Canvas Works is an innovative social enterprise programme wholly owned by Oarsome Chance.

We use donated sails, canvas materials, ropes and much more, crafting them into ‘upcycled’ products such as wallets, bags and bracelets.

This gives Canvas Works, the perfect platform to train Young People in industry standard skills to help achieve a brighter future.

In our fully equipped studio, students are involved with the design and construction of the products through our in-house training programme.

Are you a company or race team with sails to donate?

If you would like to donate your sails to Canvas Works then please email us at [email protected] to find out about our donation programme.
