Charity launch welcomed by MSP

Nanette Milne, the Scottish Conservative MSP for the North East, has welcomed the launch of the Sailors’ Children’s Society.

She has urged anyone who has worked at sea and who may qualify for support to get in touch with the charity.

The society has been created to provide grants to children and families who have a seafarer connection. The grants can help fund holidays, home computers or a particular support service.

Nanette Milne commented: “The North East has many families who have a seafarer connection with many individuals working at sea. I very much welcome the support which the Sailors’ Children’s Society is looking to offer to children and families and would encourage anyone who may need support to get in touch.”
