SEAFARERS will be celebrated at church services tomorrow.

Churches all over the world will come together to remember the world’s 1.5 million seafarers and pray for them, their families and those who support them.

As well as raising money to help those who work at sea, the day is celebrated with services, parades and ship blessings.

This year’s theme will be the Hoegh Osaka, which ran aground in the Solent, off Hill Head on January 3.

The day is organised by the Mission to Seafarers, which supported the Hoegh Osaka’s crew of 24 after the incident.
