Hovertravel for the first time ever and despite extreme winter conditions, fitted red noses to their two craft: Island Express and Freedom 90 for the week leading up to Red Nose Day.
Loretta Lale, marketing manager at Hovertravel, explains, “We have all become accustomed to seeing red noses on cars and people but we wanted to go further and equip our fleet of hovercraft. These will be the only operating passenger hovercraft with red noses on in the world and will be a great way to demonstrate our support for this fabulous event across and on the Solent.
We fitted the red noses to kick start our week of activities and even though there has been blizzards and a wind chill of -5 degrees, the team managed to install them successfully. “
Staff at Hovertravel are also organising a cake sale in the Ryde terminal on Friday 15 March, with home-baked goodies from staff and friends to encourage donations from customers. Passengers may also be delighted to see some members of staff dressed up for the day including three staff, dressed as characters from the comedy TV show Little Britain, who will be on duty to also incentivise generosity.
