We held our Seafarers’ Welfare Conference on the 27th and 28th November in Liverpool, which was a resounding success. Congratulations to Ina Bruce, The Watch Ashore and Alwyn Bamford, Mission to Seafarers, joint winners of the MNWB Annual Award for Services to Seafarers’ Welfare in recognition of many years of exceptional support and service they have given to seafarers. Awards were also received by Alex Campbell, Queen Victoria’s Seamen’s Rest and Cdre Barry Bryant, Seafarers UK, in recognition of their services to seafarers’ welfare. We were also delighted to welcome Lord Prescott to the evening dinner to present the awards. Thank you again to our speakers for taking time out of their busy schedules to attend and present at our Conference and for their contribution to another successful and thoroughly enjoyable MNWB conference!
