The evening was attended by leaders from the shipping industry and loyal supporters, with a performance by the Lloyd’s Choir, at the Mission’s international headquarters, St Michael Paternoster Royal in the City of London on 10 December.
Lesson readers were: HRH The Princess Royal, The Baroness Kramer Minister of State for Transport, John Nelson Chairman of Lloyd’s, Jeremy Penn CEO of The Baltic Exchange, Katharina Stanzel Managing Director of Intertanko, Kuba Szymanski Secretary General of Intermanager, Claudio Chiste Chairman of SPNL; plus the Mission’s Secretary General Reverend Andrew Wright, and volunteer cruise chaplain Reverend Colin Still.
A bit of trivia as a side; those who are familiar with “Dick Whittington and his cat”… may be interested to know that this is the church (St Michael Paternoster Royal) is associated with the fabled Dick Whittington.
