Shipping industry asked to ‘Get Stripey’ on 15 May to raise funds for seafarers in need

 

Shipping companies, port operators and maritime businesses are being asked by Seafarers UK to ‘Get Stripey’ on Friday 15 May 2015 to raise funds for seafarers in need and their families.

 

Getting sponsored to wear stripey clothes to work is just one of the ideas suggested by the charity on a special website www.getstripey.org

 

‘Get Stripey’ day is being promoted by media partners Lloyd’s List and Lloyd’s List Intelligence, whose staff members will also be fundraising themselves.

 

All donations will go to organisations and projects that make a real difference to people’s lives, across the Merchant Navy, Fishing Fleets, Royal Navy and Royal Marines.

 

Seafarers UK makes grants of £2.5 million each year, but receives applications for double that amount. Last year grants to help 170,000 individuals were given to 70 organisations.

 

The charity receives no government funding and is heavily dependent on corporate support, public donations and legacies to maintain its grant-making programme.

 

For more information visit www.getstripey.org or phone Seafarers UK on 020 7932 0000.
