Share your tales of the sea with char­ity

Cynon Valley - - NEWS -

A Mar­itime char­ity is call­ing on peo­ple from South Wales to share their mem­o­ries of the sea to high­light our con­nec­tion and de­pen­dence on the sea.

Stu­art Rivers, Sailors’ So­ci­ety’s CEO, said: “Whether it’s beach balls, flip-flops or the in­gre­di­ents used to make an ice cream, 90% of ev­ery­thing you see be­side the sea­side is trans­ported by sea.

“Dur­ing the heat­wave in the sum­mer, many peo­ple will have headed to the beach to cre­ate long-last­ing mem­o­ries.

“Whether you spent child­hood hol­i­days at the beach, or have made a ca­reer out of work­ing at sea, we’d love to hear and share your sto­ries.”

Sailors’ So­ci­ety works in­ter­na­tion­ally to pro­vide prac­ti­cal, emo-tional and spir­i­tual wel­fare sup­port to the world’s 1.6m sea­far­ers, re­gard­less of their back­ground or faith.

The char­ity’s chap­lains and ship vis­i­tors have a pres­ence in 91 global ports, with wider projects and ser­vices cov­er­ing 30 coun­tries.
