Barry Manilow sailed with The Kings Ferry

When legendary singer Barry Manilow visited the UK recently for his 2012 tour, he opted for the luxury and comfort of a Kings Ferry Land Yacht™.

The Kings Ferry to provide team coaches for Soccer Aid 2012

The Kings Ferry will be at the heart of the action in Manchester this weekend when we provide the team coaches for the Soccer Aid 2012 charity match at Old Trafford on Sunday 27th May.

This one-of-a-kind sporting event sees England take on the Rest of the World with celebrities and football legends taking part; the England team, captained by Robbie Williams, will go head-to-head with the Rest of the World, captained by Michael Sheen.

The Kings Ferry is delighted to be providing the official coaches which are wrapped top to toe in Soccer Aid branding. Drivers Frank Wood and Lee Damms are transporting the teams throughout the event, including to and from training for the four days leading up to the game and are looking forward to a memorable weekend.

This will be the fourth Soccer Aid event in aid of UNICEF, and so far more than £6.5 million has been raised in ticket sales and donations to support the charity’s work supporting vulnerable children around the world.
