Origins and Evolution of Hull Trinity House-12th Century to Present Day
Speaker Captain Tindall

In 1917 a new charity for the maritime community was established. Such was the impact of so many seafarers who had been maimed or lost at sea during the Great War that the King was prepared to give his name to the new Charity.
It became the King George’s Fund for Sailors. Since then Seafarers UK – as it is now known – has helped thousands of seafarers in desperate need, and their families, across the Royal Navy, Merchant Navy and Fishing Fleets. More particularly in the Humberside region, it has assisted many maritime charities such as The Sailors Children’s Society, The Fishermen’s Mission, The Apostleship of the Sea, The Mission to Seafarers and others.
