This special knife was handmade for the purpose of fundraising, to help run a course that will upgrade our chaplains’trauma counselling skills and better equip them for counselling seafarers who have been traumatised as victims of piracy.

The project will cost R60,000 and it is hoped the raffle will contribute to the bulk of the cost.

There are 200 tickets to be sold at R200 each.

The Raffle will take place at the end of August 2014 and our thanks to Nicarela who will contribute R15,000 if the Sailors’ Society is able to raise R40,000.00.
