We're excited to share that on 3 September, Seafarers UK's Fly the Red Ensign campaign reached a new record with over 800 locations hoisting the 'Red Duster' to mark Merchant Navy Day.
Seafarers UK is calling upon Government for an increased focus on fishermen's safety. Read our response to The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs' Fisheries White Paper: Sustainable Fisheries for Future Generations.
We are now busy gearing up for our last events of the year - there's still time to register to attend the Annual National Service for Seafarers or book your tickets to one of the Royal Marines Band concerts.
Early next month, results of the public ballot for London Marathon 2019 will be revealed and we have a few charity places remaining. We'd love you to join our team and help us raise the much needed funds to support our grant-giving programme.
