Shipbrokers, traders, owners and many others celebrated a third successful year of fundraising for hospital charity Mercy Ships at a Cargo Day ball in Geneva.

Tributes were paid to the work of Mercy Ships in providing free medical care each year to thousands of people in sub-Saharan Africa.

Cargo Day was established in early 2016 when, in the words of Geneva Cargo Day committee chairman and BRS Group vice president Tim Webb, the idea was to “create a unique event where the shipping and trading communities worked together for a common goal”.
