Each year KHF selects a new charity for which it actively encourage donations from its foot passengers, who are not required to pay a fee to travel aboard the floating bridge.

In January, the previously selected charity St Just in Roseland Church was presented with a cheque for £2k.

The Invictus Trust, which was set up last year by Steve and Sharon Cowburn, 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.

It focuses on development of online resources and peer support in schools and colleges, and aims to deliver printed information to every teenager in the county.

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.”
