This week is all about our Seafarers Link project and the work it does to support former members of the Royal Navy, Merchant Navy and the UK’s fishing fleet.
On Wednesday I was lucky enough to be invited to speak to the Plymouth and District branch of Watch Ashore. The national organisation was founded in 1933 to allow wives, girlfriends, mothers, daughters and sisters of Merchant Navy Officers to get to know and support each other whilst their loved ones were at sea.
I received a fantastic welcome from the ladies of Watch Ashore and an insight into lives of seafarers and their families at home.
The members of the Plymouth & District Watch Ashore are also amazing fundraisers and through a number of events have raised £700 for Community Network’s Seafarers Link project. Our thanks go to everyone involved for their effort and generosity.
