ROUND UP FOR CHARITY – AGAIN!

For the third year in a row, Stena Line launched a fleet-wide donation campaign to support the free, life-saving medical treatments that Mercy Ships provides from its hospital ship in countries where it’s needed the most.

This year the campaign started 1 October and throughout the month customers on all 37 vessels will be encouraged to Round Up for Charity. At the end of the month Stena Line will round up as well – hoping to beat last year’s result of 200,000 SEK.

What’s better still is, Mercy Ships has been appointed a UK Aid Match* Partner for the last quarter of 2019. This means every pound donated to Mercy Ships from a vessel travelling to and from the UK will be matched by the British government – up until 31 December and up to a possible 2 million GBP.

HAPPY BRINGING HAPPINESS

The Stena Line mascot Happy the porpoise has been very well received among our young travellers, and he now brings double the happiness. We are donating 1 Euro for every Happy toy sold in our on board shops, directly to Mercy Ships. Since the launch of the new collaboration we’ve seen an increase in the number of Happys sold, generating a much-needed additional monthly donation for Mercy Ships.

*UK Aid Match works to bring charities, people and the UK Government together to collectively change lives. If you want to read more about the UK Aid Match and of how you can contribute, please visit ukaidmatch.org or mercyships.org.uk.
