Staff at Wightlink Ferries are collecting for charity this Christmas – instead of sending cards to each other.

The team in the cashier’s office is inviting colleagues to donate money to the Southern Hydrocephalus and Spina Bifida Foundation which helps families in the South affected by these conditions.

Matt Harrison from the cashier’s office says,

“Usually we raise about £300 for a different Christmas charity every year. Staff are always generous in putting their hands in their pockets for a good cause and this is the fifth year we have been collecting.”

Good idea – Everyone should donate to charities instead of using cards and paying the high cost of postage.

50p for a stamp is bare faced robbery.
