Staff at Exeter-based Flybe, Europe's largest regional airline, have today donated hundred of bags of desperately needed clothing and miscellaneous goods that will be fast winging their way to re-stock a number of the county's Cancer Research UK charity shops, now the flavour of the month during these cash-strapped times. Over the past few week, Flybe's employees have been clearing out their wardrobes and cupboards ready for the 'Donation Station' collection and the charity's vans were quickly filled to capacity. Flybe's Head of Public Relations, Niall Duffy said: "The enthusiasm with which our partnership with Cancer Research UK has been embraced by all our 3 000-plus employees has been literally phenomenal and the response for today's collection in Exeter has been overwhelming. Flybe is proud to be working with the world's leading charity dedicated to cancer research and especially proud that we are currently Cancer Research UK's only airline charity partner.
