Children In Need’s Pudsey meets Henri the HoverBear at Hovertravel
As part of Hovertravel’s preparations for fund-raising for Children In Need, Pudsey paid a visit to their headquarters in Ryde today. Thanks to Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Hovertravel’s car hire partners, Pudsey was able to board the hovercraft at Southsea and fly across the Solent to meet the team at Ryde.
Loretta Lale, Head of Commercial at Hovertravel, explains: “To be able to welcome an iconic figure such as Pudsey really helped to kick-start our fund-raising activities for Children In Need. Even for his flying visit today, Pudsey was asked for selfies with customers and staff and he also met our very own mascot, Henri the HoverBear. We will be collecting throughout the week and combining our funds with our friends at Enterprise Rent-A-Car to hopefully make a substantial overall donation.”
Hovertravel will be fundraising with a cake sale and with staff dressing up as their favourite celebrity or favourite childhood hero on Friday 15th November.
Loretta adds: “We have found over the years that our customers love to engage with our charitable activities and that we can encourage them to donate by wearing costumes as we conduct our daily duties.”
