The Mission has worked with HFW to develop the Global Day of Action (GDA) 21 November 2019.
We’ll be providing the HFW shipping departments in offices all over the world with an array of inclusive and practical fundraising ideas and support to help raise vital funds that will ensure that our chaplains and seafarers’ centres across the globe can continue their vital work.
The maritime industry is truly global, and it’s exciting to think that on 21 November individuals in every corner of the globe will be focussing attention and effort on supporting the seafarers who are at the very heart of that industry. “Our fundraisers in Dubai and Singapore are working closely with the HFW offices in these locations providing enhanced support for the Global Day of Action,” says Jan Webber, our Director of Development.
We are just over halfway through a three-year corporate partnership with HFW and the Global Day of Action is just one of the many ways the law firm, who specialises in international commerce, are supporting the Mission. In addition to very generous financial donations, HFW has also provided the Mission with global probono legal advice and legal counsel, carried out a thorough review of our insurance policies and helped us to make appropriate changes to benefit the whole organisation.
“The Mission to Seafarers was the clear choice to become HFW’s first-ever global charity partner, given the connection, HFW felt with the direct welfare and emergency support it delivers to seafarers,” says Craig Neame, Partner at HFW. “We are keen to help the Mission continue its vital outreach work, and to support any relevant legal governance requirements that arise during our three-year partnership.”
