Welcome

Care Ashore was established in 1920 as The Merchant Seaman's War Memorial SocietyCare Ashore was established in 1920 as The Merchant Seaman's War Memorial Society after Havelock Wilson, the founder and president of the National Union of Seamen (NUS) recognised that there was a need to provide help for merchant seafarers.

He campaigned and highlighted awareness throughout the country, successfully raising funds, gaining the support of one main benefactor, Mr Henry Radcliffe, who was a shipping company owner.

Today Care Ashore continues to offer support to seafarers and provides both sheltered housing with support, and holidays to anyone who has served in either the Merchant and Royal Navies, plus the fishing fleets may apply for accommodation or a holiday.

Alfold Charity Model Boat Weekend - 4th & 5th June 2016

Alfold Charity Model Boat Weekend - 4th & 5th June 2016Alfold Charity Model Boat Weekend, celebrates its 20th year over the weekend of June the 4th & 5th 2016.

This year in addition to the many model boat exhibitors that kindly support this event, we are hoping to attract the support of other model clubs to add more profile to the show.

This is a show to the young and old alike and there will be various attractions to whet the appetite of all those attending to include a bouncy pirate, face painting, a refreshment tent, including something for those over 18 years, plus the usual high quality burger and cakes provided by Roffey Guides.

There is now an Alfold Charity Model Boat Show page on Facebook that is linked to the Care Ashore page which will be kept updated. Look forward to seeing you there.
