We got a gold gong at the Red Funnel awards!

We are ‘ferry happy’ to announce that Monkey Haven has won TWO gorgeous gongs in the Red Funnel Isle of Wight Awards!

Earlier this year, around 50,000 staff and customers voted, a short list was drawn up, and then a panel of judges made the final pick. We fended off tough competition to scoop the following accolades:



“These awards mean a huge amount to us, because they were voted for by YOU”, says Monkey Haven’s founder, Don Walser. “We’re so happy that visitors love coming here, and it also means a lot that our efforts to protect and preserve the environment are being recognised. This has given us a lovely boost, after what can only be described as a terrible year. Thank you, everyone. We can’t wait to welcome you all back, as soon as we can.”

Monkey Haven is also proud to be one of Red Funnel’s Charities of the Year. Face masks are being sold on the ferries, with 100% of the profits being split between us, and another local charity, Daisy Chains IW.

Says Don: “We’re very grateful to Red Funnel for having us on board as one of their Charities of the Year! Let’s all keep our fingers crossed for plain sailing next year.”
