Earlier this year, Captain Cook Cruises pledged to donate 10% of proceeds from every Top Deck lunch and High Tea cruise sold during Sep to the McGrath Foundation. The aim was to help the foundation reach its target of funding 150 breast care nurses in Australian communities, to ensure every family battling breast cancer had access to a specialist nurse and to continue to raise awareness. The fundraising drive was supported with a special Sydney Harbour Pink cruise featuring a Weekend Today show broadcast starring weathergirl Emma Freedman (CW 03 Sep) delivering her reports from aboard the line’s Sydney 2000. Passengers helped raise a total of $3,226 as part of the fundraising, which was matched by Captain Cook Cruises, who yesterday presented a cheque for $6,452 to McGrath Foundation ambassador and director Tracey Bevan. “Captain Cook Cruises is delighted to support this great cause and will continue being a corporate friend with the McGrath Foundation again in 2014,” CCC head of sales and marketing Richard Doyle said. “We believe in the strong start to our partnership with the McGrath Foundation this year and thank you to our passengers on board during our High Tea and Top Deck lunches”.
