Filipino Fishermen, Michael and Jonito: lost at Sea .
Filipino Fishermen, Romulo and Nixon miraculously survived .
Three lives were lost out of a crew of Five from the Fishing Vessel “Ocean Way” FR 349 when she sunk on 2nd November 2014, 120 miles north of North Shields. The Fishermen’s Mission in North Shields was heavily involved, as was the Fishermen’s Mission in Fraserburgh, from the start to the finish, dealing with the incident and offering welfare, pastoral and financial help and support throughout.
Julie, James’ fiancée says about James:
“He made me so happy and his crew and me were his family. He had just made steps to start a new life here in Newcastle. He was the most kindest, loving man anyone could meet.”
Now to celebrate James’s Birthday on 21 May 2015, Julie is holding a fundraising event on May 22nd. Click here to find out more.
The proceeds of this are to go to the Fishermen’s Mission North Shields and the Boulmer Volunteer Rescue Service (BVRS), nominated charity of RAF SAR Boulmer, who were involved in Ocean Way Incident.
