Share your tales of the sea with charity
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.
