The “Room to Breathe” campaign will run on the Wightlink website, its social media channels (including Facebook and Twitter), and on board Wightlink’s fleet.

A dedicated website page, www.wightlink.co.uk/roomtobreathe, has been launched where the video series can also be viewed.

Travellers are also being enticed to the Island with the latest edition of “Wightlife”, the company’s lifestyle guide to the inside track on the Island.
