seafarer-xmasThis project has been going for about 30 years when gifts are distributed to seafarers on ships in port over Christmas.

Seafarers are far from home, away from their families and miss all the Christmas celebrations back home. To ensure that they are not forgotten, the Missions join force and collect and make items which are wrapped and distributed to seafarers.

The project is going well and mugs and a good stock of mittens and beanies have been received.

Our heartfelt thanks to all those enthusiastic knitters as well as donors .

Wrapping of gifts will take place on 29 November 2016 from 09h00 at the Seafarers’ Centre, Bayhead.

Distribution in the port will be done on 22 December and at outer anchorage on 23 December
