180th Anniversary Celebration

Huge thanks to our special guests Su Pollard and Lord Michael Cashman who joined us for our celebration of 180 years of serving seafarers, veterans of the armed forces and others in need. The afternoon was filled full of fun and laughter, Su adding her own inimitable comical style to Lord Cashman’s delightful humour. Entertainment was also provided by the Pearly Kings and Queens who rallied us all in a good old East End sing-along.

The event was also an opportunity to honour some of our staff for their long service, Dennis (25 years), Osei (20 years), Irene (20 years) and our very own CEO, Alexander Campbell OBE (20 years) as well as mark the renewal of our IIP accreditation.

We were delighted to be joined by representatives from our Maritime partners, the MNWB, Seafarers Charity, Trinity House, Port of London Authority and Stella Maris, to name but a few, as well as the Speaker of Tower Hamlets Council, Cllr Jahed Choudhury, many of our residents and members of the local community.

Our heartfelt thanks go out to all who came to the event, we are ever grateful for your support of our work helping those in need.

Here’s to the next 180 years!!
