Ferry passengers raise £11k for MGP

Donation drive pays off

Thanks to the generosity of passengers on sailings during this year's Festival of Motorcycling, the Steam Packet has raised £11,000 pounds for a motorcycling charity.

Crews on both the Mananan and the Ben-my-Chree coordinated collections through the festival, for a donation to the Manx Grand Prix Supporters Club.

The money will go to supporting the club's activities, which include hiring rescue helicopters during the Grand Prix, and assisting injured riders.

Club Chairman Allan Brew has thanked the Steam Packet and it's passengers for raising a 'wonderful' amount of money.
