In 2016 and 2017, Seafarers UK – thanks to sponsorship from Fyffes – produced free KS1 materials showing the sea-going journey of a banana from faraway to the UK.

Teachers and schools were able to request printed and digital materials for use in classrooms and book bags. Over 20,000 children took part in this educational campaign.

Primary schools were invited to organise a maritime/nautical ‘dress up day’ to show their support for seafarers, with some impressive results – see photos!
