DUTCH TUGS AT MARE HARBOUR DONATE £2,000 TO
FALKLAND COMMUNITY



Article by Chris Lock



LAST Sunday Captain Kooiker,
master of the Dutch tug Giessenstroom and Captain Verkaik, master of the
Dintelstroom, along with their crews gave donations to both the Stephen Jaffray
Memorial Fund and the Education Department.



 



Van WinjGaarden, the Dutch company
contracted by the Ministry of Defence to operate the two tugs in Mare Harbour
have recently launched a new vessel, the Amerstroom in Holland.  To mark the acceptance of new vessels into
the company it has been custom for Van WijnGaarden to make a donation to local
Falkland charities.  Captain Kooiker
said: “When the Dintelstroom was taken in service three years ago we donated
money to Stanley Sea Cadets and Stanley Seamen's Mission.”



 



Captains Kooiker and Verkaik
nominated the Stephen Jaffray Memorial Fund and the Education Department
because of their significance and importance amongst the local community.  Gardner Fiddes, the Chief Fire Officer and a
Trustee of the Stephen Jaffary Memorial Fund, receiving the £1000 cheque said:
“It is a privilege to be able to accept this donation.”  The fund was established 20 years ago by the
family of the late Stephen Jaffray, following his death in 1992.  Mr Jaffray was a member of the Stanley Fire
Brigade and over the years thousands of pounds have been raised in various
charity events. The Stephen Jaffray Memorial Fund offers assistance to help
with flight and accommodation costs for family members of people who need to
leave the Islands for medical treatment and who might otherwise be unable to
afford to accompany and support them. 



 



Eileen Davies, the training and
education manager for the Education Department received the second donation of
£1000 and said the money will be split between Camp Education, Stanley House
and the two schools.  Chief Officer Chris
Locke, the Queen’s Harbour Master, Mare Harbour who was at the presentation
with his wife Nancy said: “It is great that the local community is able to
benefit from the generosity of our Dutch tug company Van WijnGaarden.  We hope the donations will make a difference
to both the Stephen Jaffray Memorial Fund and Falklands Education.”
