The Hayling Ferry Trust Crowdfunding Campaign for New Ferry

The loss of the Hayling Ferry has meant that the important sea link between Portsea Island and Hayling Island has been broken, forcing commuters, school children, cyclists, tourists and locals to find a new & lengthy alternative route. The Hayling Ferry Trust is a community group actively aiming to reinstate the ferry and make it a sustainable transport link for now and the future. The Trust has been fundraising for some time, including their high profile first donation of £5,000  from Virgin & The Virgin Kitesurfing Armada.  More funds are needed for the relaunch of the service so they have created a crowdfunding campaign offering a variety of different pledges and rewards, such as:

£10  –  Become a ‘Friend of The Hayling Ferry Trust’
The Trust will keep you up to date with the latest news on the lead-up to the Hayling Ferry  relaunch – and also regularly once the Ferry is back in service.

£20  –  Receive a Limited Edition Mug  &  become a ‘Friend of The Hayling Ferry Trust’

£40  –  ‘Sponsor a Lifejacket’  &  become a ‘Friend of The Hayling Ferry Trust’
The Trust will keep you up to date with the latest news on the lead-up to the Hayling Ferry relaunch – and also regularly once the Ferry is back in service.  Please note you will not actually receive a lifejacket but your support will make a big difference to the overall Hayling Ferry operation.  Health & Safety is taken with the utmost seriousness and the Hayling Ferry  will be licensed by the Maritime and Coastguard Agency and carry all specified safety equipment at all times.
