Aberdeen Seafarers' Centre took part in the third sector parade down Union Street and enjoyed the fun of the day as well as highlighting our ministry to seafarers with the general public.
On the 25th April, 2015, the first Celebration event will took place at the Salvation Army Citadel, 28 Castle Street, Aberdeen.
Special guests included the Lord Provost; The Moderator of the Church of Scotland and the Episcopal Bishop of Aberdeen; sadly the RC Bishop is out of the country that day.
It was an enjoyable evening with music from the Salvation Army Scottish Fellowship Band in its 30th anniversary year.
In only its third year of operation, the centre has grown in many ways and gained an international reputation for its friendly welcome and free facilities, including 10 Skype enabled PC stations, Wi-Fi throughout the building, two pool tables, darts, table football, large screen TV, karaoke, reading/counselling room, Wii games, board games and an extensive book and DVD exchange library.
Open every evening of the year between the hours of 1800 and 2200, all seafarers have a place to get off their ‘tin box’ and meet with other seafarers to relax and to contact their families back home.
The evening raised in excess of £1,200 and we express our gratitude to all who attended and for the generous donations received.
