Red Funnel still looking for their 2019 Charity of the Year


There is just over 1 week remaining to apply to be the 2019 Red Funnel charity of the year. So Red Funnel is asking local community organisations and environmental charities to apply to be considered as the company’s 2019 Charity of the Year. The Isle of Wight ferry specialist supports over 30 charities, but every year it focusses its fundraising initiatives on just 1 charity which is chosen via a public vote. Red Funnel’s HR director, Debbie Reed said: “2019 marks the fifth year of the scheme and in that time, we have raised over £200,000 and worked with some superb charities including UKSA, Ability Dogs 4 Young People, Hampshire & the Isle of Wight Air Ambulance and this year’s charity, IW Donkey Sanctuary.” To meet the criteria for Red Funnel’s 2019 Charity of the Year charities/organisations need to be:

  • A registered charity

  • Have been in operation for at least 12 months

  • Aims to support the local community or environment

  • Share Red Funnel’s commitment to ‘Red goes Green’ by operating in an environmentally sustainable and sympathetic manner

The closing date for entries is Friday 26 October 2018. Once submitted, Red Funnel’s Business Exchange will meet the shortlisted charities and 3 will be selected for a public vote in November 2018. Charities can apply online by clicking here
