The Invergordon Seafarers Centre is affiliated to an international Seafarers welfare charity, The Sailor’s Society, and is completely run by volunteers. The charity provides Internet access, Wi-Fi and phone cards to allow the crewmembers to speak to their families at home after many months at sea. They also provide practical home comforts and support, including tea and coffee, home baking, local information, and items such as warm clothing.
During 2015, 5,222 seafarers visited the centre in Invergordon and the volunteers carried out 387 ship visits around the Cromarty Firth. In this time, the organisation used their minibus to transport 798 seafarers from their ships to the Invergordon Seafarers Centre, to football matches in Dingwall, to sports centres to play basketball, for shopping in Inverness, and for visits to Loch Ness.
Drew Anderson, Sailor’s Society Auxiliary Port Chaplain, Invergordon Seafarers Centre, explains “Our volunteers work very hard to offer support to the many crewmembers we see from around the world. Often they find themselves at sea for many months, so they miss their families very much. We do anything we can do to make their stay in Invergordon as happy as possible.”
The volunteers from the Invergordon Seafarers Centre genuinely care about the crews that come into the Port. Their services are an essential part of the welcome Invergordon gives to ships coming in to the Cromarty Firth.
