On Wednesday 4th October 2017 three of our wonderful Stewards, John, Lesley and Keith, visited the Above and Beyond charity offices to present a cheque for the donation raised through the on-board raffles on this seasons Torbay Express. They were warmly welcomed by Catherine, the fundraising co-ordinator, and were given a brief tour of the three hospitals supported to directly see where the donation will be of benefit. They found the tour very interesting and informative and Above and Beyond were delighted with the amount raised and thanked everyone involved.
