The Sailors’ Children’s Society organise regular events during the year to raise funds to support the ongoing commitment we have made to our families that we support. Over the years, we have received many requests from individuals, businesses and even groups of people offering to help us with their fundraising ideas. Fundraising is about you as an individual, employee or employer bringing some fun and a challenge whilst raising funds for the Society.

We would be more than happy to come and talk to groups – no matter how large or small to brainstorm ideas or maybe you already know what you would like to do and just want to know how to get started. Whether it is part of a Charity of the Year nomination or just a one-off fundraiser, there are lots of ways to fundraise. It can motivate and inspire you. It also is a great way of getting people together in the community. If you want to help in any way whether it may be to raise funds, do some voluntary work or raise awareness, please contact Wendy Fish on the telephone number below or by email

We are very grateful from a number of charitable trusts. Their support is essential and we rely on these donations to help us to continue to provide ongoing support to children of seafarers and to further develop other ways of helping families other than financially.


We would like to thank all of the charitable trusts and organisations who have donated so far. Without this support much of our work would not be able to go ahead.
