This year Pacific Basin is sending 20 Christmas angels to volunteer at the Sailors’ Society Carol Service. Instead of having a traditional staff outing, employees from Pacific Basin will be seen handing out mince pies and ushering in guests at the charity’s annual Christmas Service on the 18th December. The money that the company would normally have spent on a fancy restaurant meal will be donated to Sailors’ Society and go towards helping the world’s 1.5 million seafarers.
Sailors’ Society’s Jenny Boland, Lead Fundraiser – Corporate and Trusts, said “It’s great to see companies coming up with creative ways to support us and the seafaring community. It shows real Christmas spirit on the part of Pacific Basin. We would like to say a huge thank you to them and to all our other supporters who are remembering seafarers this festive season.” The service will be held at the church of All Hallows by the Tower, London.
