Seafarers concert guildford-a5-updated0927The band of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines will perform at Guildford’s G Live on Saturday, October 15, to raise funds for seafarers in need.

Seafarers UK, the leading maritime charity, returns to Guildford once again, following the huge success of its fundraising Royal Marines Band concerts over many years.

The popularity and following of the Royal Marines Band is as strong as ever and it has entertained in Guildford for over 25 years at the Civic Hall, Guildford Cathedral and now G Live.

Established in 1917, Seafarers UK ( formerly King George’s Fund for Sailors) includes the Royal Navy and Royal Marines, the Merchant Navy and the Fishing Fleets. It provides invaluable support to this community and associated charities.

Last year applications for grants continue to be robust but exceed our resources. Seafarers UK awarded grants of £3,574,465, all made to causes which help the seafarer.

Although Second World War veterans are diminishing, sadly recent conflicts and the decline in the UK merchant marine have swelled the numbers of those seeking assistance. Although the UK is an island that nation suffers from a degree of sea blindness and it is sometimes easy to forget mariners in need.
