Condor Ferries takes on mannequin challenge in aid of Channel Islands Air Search
Condor Ferries has recruited staff and passengers to create its very own version of the mannequin challenge, the viral video craze that is sweeping social media.
Staff and passengers struck a variety of frozen poses onboard Condor Rapide, including in the Duty Free shop, main cabin, Bistro Casquets and the Ocean bar.
Working alongside its elected charity, Channel Islands Air Search, Condor plans to donate £1,000 to the charity if it can secure 1,000 likes, loves or laughs for its video, which has been posted on its Facebook page @OfficialCondorFerries, and will be shared across other social media platforms.

Justin Amey, Head of Marketing at Condor Ferries, commented: “The staff and passengers really enjoyed getting involved in our mannequin challenge, freezing for the camera in a variety of fun poses. We are hopeful that our video will be viewed and shared across social media and have pledged to donate £1,000 to Channel Islands Air Search if we can secure 1,000 likes, loves or laughs.”
Captain Brian Nibbs from Channel Islands Air Search, said: “We sincerely appreciate the continuing efforts of Condor Ferries to raise funds for Air Search. To simply maintain the vital service that Air Search provides costs in the region of £140,000 per year and Condor Ferries’ drive to fundraise on our behalf helps to keep us on target. Our thanks to the team at Condor for their support.”
Channel Islands Air Search is a voluntary service that provides a rapid response airborne rescue service in the 4,000 square miles of waters surrounding the Channel Islands. The charity is currently raising funds for the purchase of a new state-of-the-art aircraft. It is the chosen charity of Condor Ferries, who display collection boxes onboard all of its vessels and also supports the charity with other fundraising events.
