The first Peters & May ‘Pink Lashings’ shipment left Palma for Fort Lauderdale last week, and now the leading global marine transport company is calling for more boat owners to support its campaign to help raise £25,000 for the charity, Breast Cancer Clinical Trials (BCCT).
The first customer to support the Pink Lashings campaign is the owner of a 23 metre Leopard, who commented: “As soon as the team at Peters & May mentioned this initiative during the booking process, I immediately took the chance to be the first yacht secured with the distinctive pink lashings. I’m thrilled to be supporting such a brilliant cause, and hope that many other boat owners will follow in my footsteps.”
The yacht will arrive in the USA on 20th October, courtesy of Peters & May, in time for the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. You can follow its progress across the Atlantic on the company’s Twitter and Facebook pages using the hashtag #PandMPink.
Charity Breast Cancer Clinical Trials’ aim is to raise awareness of the importance of clinical trials in the prevention, diagnoses and treatment of Breast Cancer, giving women the chance to take part in ground-breaking research using cutting edge technology. Nearly 8 out of 10 women in the UK now survive breast cancer beyond 10 years; it is the charity’s hope that its work will increase this number.
Boat owners wishing to support the Pink Lashings campaign as part of their planned movements this winter should contact Peters & May on +44 (0) 2380 480 480.
