Mission to Seafarers celebrates Sea Sunday, 13 July 2014

Sea Sunday is a day when hundreds of services will be held around the country to give thanksgiving and prayers for the vital work that seafarers do for British people.

Anyone can attend and give their support to the people who bring 90% of all imported goods to Britain’s shores by ship, night and day, 365 days a year.

Many endure hardships and significant time away from their families. Their hard work and conditions are rarely highlighted. This year’s the focus will be on the tragic plight of abandoned seafarers who are suffering in maritime ports all over the world

The Mission to Seafarers is a charity which operates as a vital connection to the port community for emergency help and support. Its teams monitor the UK’s local ports and further afield in a total of 71 countries across the globe, offering trained, caring professionals and dedicated volunteers to assist seafarers in distress.
