King Harry Ferry has announced teenage mental health charity The Invictus Trust as their adopted charity of the year for 2012.

 

Each year the KHF team selects a new charity for which they actively encourage donations from their foot passengers, who are not required to pay a fee to travel aboard the iconic floating bridge. In January, the previously selected charity St. Just in Roseland Church was presented with a cheque for £2000.

The Invictus Trust is a small Cornish charity aiming to provide vital information and support to local adolescents who are suffering from poor mental health and associated issues. They focus on development of online resources and peer support in schools and colleges, and aim to deliver printed information to every teenager in the county.

Truro residents Steve and Sharon Cowburn, who set up the charity in 2011, know only too well the vital role that mental support can play in people's lives, having tragically lost their son Ben aged just 18. The Cowburn family, including Ben's three sisters, now tirelessly fundraise through a myriad of social events to generate awareness and develop support for teenage mental health.

Donations welcomed

 

The King Harry Ferry is delighted to support The Invictus Trust with their valuable work. Beverley Hayward from the King Harry Steam Ferry Company said: "We are more than happy to be supporting such a good cause, and we look forward to encouraging all our foot passengers to donate throughout the year ahead".
