Blue Islands appeal raises over £25,000 for The Lions’ Pride

The Blue Islands appreal to raise money for the Channel Islands Air Search aircraft which was badly damaged during a rescue mission in November has raised a staggering £25,932.70. 

As part of the appeal, Blue Islands donated £5 for every return flight booked, from Guernsey or Jersey. Additionally, Blue Islands has raised money through its Christmas party raffle, donations whilst giving away Champagne during late night shopping in Guernsey, and through its 'JustGiving' page.

Rob Veron, Blue Islands' Managing Director said

We are delighted to have raised over £25,000 to support the Channel Islands Air Search in getting The Lions' Pride back to its life saving work. It's clear everyone appreciates just how important this emergency service is to our islands.

Channel Islands Air Search Chief Officer Colin Ferbrache said

What terrific news, Blue Islands has informed us that its fund raising figure from ticket sales, after just a month, has reached twenty five thousand pounds. We are most appreciative of the determined way Blue Islands has set about assisting Air Search in our time of need to enable us to return quickly as the Eyes in the Sky over the Channel Islands

Mr Veron added

We would also like to thank our partners from Jersey Evening Post, Guernsey Press, Channel 103 and Island FM for supporting this vital campaign.

The Channel Islands Air Search was established in 1980 and crewed entirely by volunteers who ensure the service is operational 24/7. Each year the costs to keep The Lions' Pride airborne is around £100,000. In addition to the annual running costs, funds have to be raised for capital items such as engine replacement programmes and other essential equipment.
