Four leading charities supporting seafarers and their families are set to benefit from the inaugural London International Shipping Week (LISW), taking place in the U.K. capital this September.

Apostleship of The Sea, Mission To Seafarers, Sailors’ Society and Seafarers U.K. have been chosen by the LISW Steering Group to be the beneficiaries of fund-raising efforts during the week-long shipping showcase.

London International Shipping Week kicks off with a Charity Golf Day at Walton Heath Golf Club, Surrey, on Monday, September 9 which will see these four worthy causes share the entry fees and receive proceeds from various fundraising efforts.

And delegates attending the LISW Conference on Thursday, September 12 will have the chance to boost much-needed charity funding further by donating cash in special envelopes provided in each delegate pack and on tables at the evening’s Gala Dinner.

Jean Winfield, Director of LISW organizer Shipping Innovation Ltd, said, “The steering group felt this was an excellent opportunity for the international shipping community to support these vital maritime charities and we are delighted to have the chance to help elevate their profile during a week when the eyes of the world will be turned on London.”
