23 February 2017 – SEAFARERS UK CENTENARY CELEBRATION DINNER, LIVERPOOL

By Annette Parker

On 1 January 2017 the leading maritime charity, Seafarers UK, celebrated the start of its Centenary Year.

To help mark this anniversary, and a few weeks ahead of the first meeting 100 years ago in 1917 to discuss the formation of the charity (previously known as King George’s Fund for Sailors), Seafarers UK is holding a special Centenary Celebration Dinner in Liverpool on 23 February at the Merseyside Maritime Museum.

The evening, sponsored by Peel Ports Group and Propeller Club Liverpool, will involve a drinks reception, a three-course dinner, music by the Band of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines, speeches and a special auction. Former Deputy Prime Minister, The Rt Hon Lord Prescott is the after-dinner speaker.

For more details about booking to attend the Seafarers UK Centenary Dinner at Merseyside Maritime Museum, please visit http://www.seafarers.uk or send an email to alexandra.sard@seafarers-uk.org.

All proceeds from the evening will go towards the new care and accommodation wing being built at Mariners’ Park in Wallasey for older and retired seafarers – a Seafarers UK Centenary project.
