Seafarers UK - the charity that supports seafarers in need - has announced that recent sales of Seafarers Ale have resulted in brewer and premium pub company Fuller, Smith & Turner PLC (Fuller’s) making a donation to Seafarers UK of £39,000.
Fuller’s acquired the Gales-branded Seafarers Ale in 2005 and since then a donation per pint sold has been made to Seafarers UK. The total raised to date exceeds £200,000, money that contributes to Seafarers UK’s grants paid to charities, organisations and projects that support seafarers across the Merchant Navy, Royal Navy and Fishing Fleets.
Seafarers UK Director General, Commodore Barry Bryant CVO RN thanked Fuller’s:
‘This latest donation is most welcome in 2017, our centenary year. Since 1917 Seafarers UK has been providing vital funding to support seafarers in need and their families. Sales of Seafarers Ale enable us to maintain grant giving of more than £2 million per annum.’
