Glasgow Rotary made Apostleship of the Sea (AoS) their most recent guests.
At their monthly meeting in the city’s Marriott Hotel, AoS Scottish Development Officer Euan McArthur was invited along to share with them some stories about AoS’ involvement both in Great Britain and further afield where seafarers have been helped.
Joining Euan that afternoon was volunteer Jim Timmoney, parish contact of Our Lady and St Mark’s Alexandria, who helped initiate the engagement.
Long-serving Rotary Member, Davy Broni, said, “We would like to thank AoS for taking the opportunity to join us and, we would certainly like to help their ministry moving forward. We like to hear about work being done locally like the help given to Zlatko, the Croatian seafarer, while he was in hospital here in Glasgow.”
Rotary’s strong Christian emphasis sees them welcome many charities and endeavour to help worthy local causes.
* Euan will swim 60 laps on April 14 to raise funds for seafarers. Please support him by making a donation here https://www.justgiving.com/campaigns/charity/aots/euan-swim-2018
