“The Flying Angel Club is diverse in its activities and as a House and Pastoral Care Committee, we discuss a broad range of topics from seafarers’ welfare, services to seafarers, their entertainment during shore leave, the club house operations and pastoral care.
“The committee also considers the wellbeing of our volunteers, the importance of their engagement and training and meeting their varied expectations as members of the MtSV community.
“Volunteers are vital to all aspects of our work and I extend my appreciation on behalf of the House Committee to all who have contributed their time to the operations of the Flying Angel Club; as a place of welcome and of service to visiting crew.
“On-shore facilities provide recreation, local information and a friendly welcome after long stretches at sea. Importantly the club provides a place for seafarers to relax outside of the confines of the ship and enables them to contact their families at home as well as connect with people for advice, friendship, support and recreation.”
