Rev Peter then brought into the room Captain Steve Roberts and introduced him, saying that Steve had been an original director and had to step down when work commitments took him away to other parts of the world.  He since returned and has also been welcomed back to the board
Steve then approached Henry and presented a cheque for £500 from his employers, Seajacks

Rev Peter then announced that the finger buffet, supplied and prepared by one of the volunteers Barbara, was open and then we all tucked in to the delicious homemade goodies

How wonderful! We are so pleased at how the Lord has helped you Peter to achieve so much. I remember times when it looked as though you would never get a centre for the Seafarers. Sometimes it all looked perhaps a bit hopeless and discouraging. We hope and pray that the great work will continue to be blessed. And many blessings to you Peter!
