Arrive at FLIBS in style, in the name of charity

By

As the first Peters & May ‘Pink Lashings’ shipment leaves Palma for Fort Lauderdale, the yacht transport company is calling all superyacht owners to support its campaign to help raise £25,000 for the charity, Breast Cancer Clinical Trials (BCCT). 

The initiative, launching this October as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, gives yacht owners using Peters & May the option to have specially manufactured pink lashing straps in support of the charity when their vessel is secured for transportation. A donation of just £5 for each lashing strap by the owner will be matched by the company to give a total donation of £10 to the charity for each strap used. Whilst the number of straps required for each shipment is calculated by its weight and length, the average 24m yacht would use 50 lashings and therefore raise a phenomenal £500 for the charity for just one shipment.

The first customer to support the Pink Lashings campaign is the owner of a 23m 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 20 October, courtesy of Peters & May, in time for the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.



BCCT’s Victoria Gerlis said: “We are delighted that Peters & May has chosen to support us with this initiative. The use of our charity’s colour for their striking lashing straps will help to raise awareness while the kind donations from both yacht owners and the company itself will enable us to make a real difference with our work."

Dave Holley, CEO of the Peters & May Group added: "Breast Cancer Clinical Trials is a charity close to many people’s hearts, especially mine, having lost my mother to this terrible disease. The work they do has already led to some great achievements and we are excited to have come up with this innovative idea to help further the cause. We are confident that our clients will appreciate this opportunity to donate to such a worthwhile cause."
