Historical information

Social events were used both as fund raisers to continue the work at the Mission to Seafarers and as social events for visiting seafarers. This photograph depicts one such event where it is likely that the majority of men were seafarers


The Mission to Seafarers as an organisation is dedicated to not only providing spiritual and practical support to seafarers, but has long found it important to provide social opportunities as well. In the past there have been many dances, concerts and other social events that have been designed to cater for visiting seafarers.
