(17 April 2021) Volunteers from Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust are on board Wightlink’s car ferry St Clare this weekend to spread the word about their activities as the region’s leading nature conservation charity and sign up new members.
They will set up their stand on Deck 4 and are keen to answer questions from customers travelling between Portsmouth and Fishbourne.
Gary Lawrence from Shanklin is one of the team. He says: “I’m looking forward to meeting customers and staff and explaining what we do on both sides of the Solent. We manage over 50 nature reserves for everyone’s benefit and welcome visitors who want to know more about our wonderful green spaces.”
Wightlink Chief Executive Keith Greenfield adds: “We are delighted to welcome the Wildlife Trust onboard this weekend. Environmental matters are close to our heart as we operate England’s first ferry powered by hybrid energy – Victoria of Wight.”
