Our new partnership with P&O Cruises got off to a tasty start, with tea and cakes with Eric Lanlard.
P&O Cruises recently got onboard to raise money for Macmillan in a year long partnership which sees its fleet of seven ships playing host to fundraising activities and events. The partnership was launched in style by Macmillan supporter and
P&O Cruises Ambassador master patissier Eric Lanlard, who baked green cupcakes for P&O Cruises staff, all dressed for the occasion in Macmillan green t-shirts.
Officers and crew will be taking part in fitness challenges, while passengers will be able to take part in coffee mornings, donate their spare foreign coins and bid on exclusive keepsakes from their luxury holidays, all in aid of Macmillan.
P&O Cruises managing director Carol Marlow said 'The reality is that more than one in three of us will get cancer. Macmillan is an incredible charity which offers emotional, practical and financial support to those affected. P&O Cruises is determined to help raise as much money as possible in 2013 to help them to do this. Passengers on board our ships will be able to join in with a range of fundraising activities and I am sure will support our efforts for this immensely worthy cause.'
Partnership Account Manager at Macmillan, Ellie Walker said: ‘We’re delighted
that P&O Cruises is supporting Macmillan to raise funds and awareness of Macmillan amongst staff and passengers. For most of us, cancer will be the toughest fight we ever face, but by working with us, P&O Cruises are helping us ensure that no one has to face cancer alone. I’m really excited to see how our calendar of exciting fundraising events goes this year.’
