Anyone stuck for a Christmas present to give Design Bridge should try a Viking-style longboat for size.
A regular fundraiser for charities and good causes, group director Sir William Goodenough would be most impressed by the gift. He plans to sail from Scotland to Norway to raise money for The Richard Langhorn Trust, a charity organisation for disabled and under-privileged children, but is currently lacking in the longboat department, to the tune of one.
Details for his return journey are as yet sketchy, although the seafaring Goodenough concedes he will probably take a more modern form of transport. A hot air balloon is definitely not an option.
