Dennis The Menace Spotted On Dfds Ship
Dennis the Menace made an appearance on a DFDS ferry this week to launch a special summer promotion that will see the company give away more than 120,000 free copies of the Beano on its ships.
The mischievous comic book character features in a special edition of The Beano that the ferry company developed to mark its 150th anniversary with publisher DC Thomson. Free copies of the special issue, which is the first of its kind for a transport operator, will be available to customers on DFDS ships from Dover to Calais and Dover to Dunkirk throughout July and August.
To celebrate its partnership, the ferry company is also offering its customers the chance to win prizes, including free annual subscriptions to The Beano and free ferry tickets. Customers can take part in The Beano themed competitions at www.dfds.co.uk/beano and via Twitter @DFDSSeaways.
Prices to travel on the Dover routes start from £39 each way for a car and up to nine people. Book at www.dfds.co.uk or on 0871 521 5522.
