As a major employer, we encourage our workforce to use their skills and time to give something back to the communities where they live and work.
Our people are enthusiastic volunteers and fundraisers through events such as cake sales and tuckshops or sponsoring a guide dog. This spring 17 Hovertravel colleagues picked up a total of 17 bags of rubbish from the beach at Ryde, including items such as a deflated dinghy and part of a poly form boat fender, alongside discarded drinks cans, plastic straws and ear buds.
We support charities in other ways too. Through regular ‘Give Back’ events, our people have mentored local charities, providing advice on topics such as social media, fundraising, website design, cybersecurity and more.
