NorthLink Ferries to Orkney and Shetland

NorthLink Ferries Sponsorship Scheme

Serco NorthLink Ferries has a sponsorship scheme available, on application, to schools, sports and community groups – including those involved in the Commonwealth Games –  with an annual value of £100,000.

Unlike the previous ‘Schools and Communities’ discount it has a formal application process to ensure that any discount or free travel is applied fairly and appropriately.

Applications are currently being called for the first of two funding rounds in 2013.  The deadline has been extended until 27th March.  Details on the application process can be found on the Sponsorship Webpage on the NorthLink Ferries website.
