First draw for the Seafarers Centre’s 50 Club competition 

first 50 club drawThe first draw took place on Monday 17th August 2015 with the Mayor of Great Yarmouth, Shirley Weymouth and her Consort.  The Mayor was on a visit to the Centre and, as part of that visit, she launched the Centre's 50 Club monthly competition.  In the picture alongside, you can see the Mayor at the computer all set to push that button on the random selector sitting at the Port Chaplain’s desk at the recently opened Great Yarmouth Seafarers Centre

The 50 Club is the way you can help GYSC to make money and, at the same time, make a little money for yourself.  Each place in the competition costs £5 per month … but you may have as many places as you wish.  The draw is made around the third Monday of every month and the winner receives half the income

The money raised by the 50 Club is used to fund the day to day expenses incurred by the Centre.  Without the 50 Club, the centre would not be able to fund the facilities offered to seafarers that they so richly deserve, including Wi-Fi to enable them to contact family

The Centre is not staffed by paid employees.  Those who work at the centre do so voluntarily

Your generous support helps the centre to give emotional and practical support to seafarers of all nationalities by:

offering a welcome and hospitality in the port of Great Yarmouth;
enabling them to keep in touch with their homes and families;
assisting them with all kinds of emergencies and problems through the availability of the Port Chaplain


If you would like to support this very worthy venture by volunteering, taking part in the 50 Club competition, or by donation, please contact the Port Chaplain, Rev Peter Paine:
