During November PKPC presented a donation cheque of $10,000 to the Port Kembla branch of the Mission to Seafarers.
In making the presentation PKPC Chairman Nicholas Whitlam highlighted the fact that the Mission had an important role to play in ensuring the welfare of seafarers that visited the port.
Accepting the cheque was John Kewa the Pastoral Carer and Manager of the Mission in Port Kembla. Mr Kewa was joined by members of the committee of the Mission and some long serving volunteers.
Donations to the Mission contribute to paying for the provision of services for all seafarers visiting the port. This includes running costs for the Mission, costs for internet connections and usage and vehicle expenses.
The Mission has approximately 6000 visitors a year and this number is expected to increase in the coming years in line with the expansion taking place at the port.
