Fundraising for Seafarers UK comes in many different forms. We have a wide range of Challenge Events that you can participate in or you can also organise your own fundraising event at home or at work.

From a swimathon, summer party, a table top sale, cake sale, raffle or wine tasting evening – whatever you decide to do – your fundraising event will help make a big difference to the quality of all seafaring families who are in difficulty.

‘I organised a summer party in support of Seafarers UK. With good planning and great support from my friends and family the night was a real success and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves’

Poppy Ewence, organised events to raise over £1,500 in sponsorship for the London Marathon
