Hebridean Island Cruises Supports New Marine Charity

Hebridean Island Cruises have become the first cruise line to come out in support of new marine conservation charity Sea-Changers.

In its 25th Anniversary year of cruises on the Hebridean Princess, the company will provide their guests with the opportunity to make a significant contribution towards sea-going environmental concerns. A recommended donation of £20 for each booking will be requested as the booking is made (guests can donate more, if they prefer).

Guests will not be under any obligation to make the donation, but all the donations made in this way will be collected by Hebridean Island Cruises and handed to Sea-Changers, which was established by keen conservationists Helen Webb and Rachel Lopata in 2010.

The new marine conservation charity was specifically set up to establish partnerships of this kind. All of the money raised by Hebridean customers will be passed on to relevant marine conservation charities and projects, with no administration costs subtracted. Sea-Changers will distribute the money to a range of projects, within one of the following areas:
  • Marine Reserves/Protected Marine Areas
  • Direct Marine Clean Up Action
  • Education, Campaigning and Awareness Raising
  • Species Protection and Research
For more information on Sea-Changers and their work, be sure to look up their website at http://www.sea-changers.org.uk/ or call 07909 897867.
