Welcoming our 2018 Charity of the Year

This year, we received a record-breaking number of votes, with over 5,000 customers having their say over a two-week period. 

Here at Red Funnel, we are proud to work with and support over 30 local charities on an ongoing basis. Each year we ask the public to vote for their charity of the year, who we will provide extra support to over the following 12 months. 

Our 2018 Charity of the Year is the Isle of Wight Donkey Sanctuary!

 It's a small, Island based charity with four key objectives:

Animal Welfare – caring for abandoned, neglected or retired donkeys.

Education – providing an education site for schools across the island and other parts of the UK.

Partnership – working with other charities and local groups.

Donkey Therapy – using donkeys to provide enjoyment and companionship for those in residential homes and day centers.

With your help, we hope to raise £50,000 in 2018 to help the Sanctuary plan a long term future. You can also make a small gift donation to the charity when you make a ferry or holiday booking using this website.

We’ll keep you up to date throughout the year about our charity activities – check out some of our previous blogs here
