Seapost - June 2023

The latest e-newsletter from The Seafarers' Charity.

Welcome to the June edition of Seapost, The Seafarers' Charity's e-newsletter! Get ready for exciting updates and important initiatives.

Firstly, save the date for Merchant Navy Day on 3 September. Join us in celebrating and paying tribute to our merchant seafarers, who play a vital role in keeping our supply lines open and delivering essential goods to the UK.

In this edition, we'll also reflect on the highlights from our charity’s 106th Annual Meeting, where collaboration and safety were at the forefront of our discussions. See the impact of your support and the positive difference it makes in the lives of seafarers and their communities.

Don't miss our #SafetyDrillTime competition! Participate and promote safety for a chance to win fantastic prizes. We'll provide all the details on how to get involved.

Please also join us in supporting Sarah Ready's incredible 365-day swimming challenge. By rallying behind her efforts, you can contribute to our vital work and make a real difference to fishing communities facing difficult times.

As 14th June 2023 marked the 41st Anniversary of the Falklands War, we’d like to honour all those seafarers who served in the Conflict and those that did not return. Their bravery and sacrifice will forever be remembered.

Looking ahead, join #TeamSeafarersKGFS at the prestigious London Marathon 2024. Lace-up your running shoes, raise funds for The Seafarers' Charity, and directly impact the lives of seafarers.

In this edition, you can also take a virtual visit to Mariner's Park, where our largest grant supports accommodation services for retired mariners. See the exceptional facilities and learn about the exciting future plans.

Lastly, meet the dedicated team at The Royal Liverpool Seamen's Orphan Institution, one of our long-standing beneficiary charities, who work tirelessly to support bereaved families and provide financial assistance. Hear firsthand how your support eases their burdens.
