Lifeline Benefits from Superliner Refurbishment
Wednesday, 26th May 2010 at 4:37 pm

A donation of surplus items from P&O Cruises is set to kick off a new partnership with national mental health charity, Lifeline Australia.

With Brisbane-based P&O Cruises’ superliner Pacific Dawn currently in dry-dock for a major refurbishment, Lifeline Australia is preparing to take delivery of nearly one-thousand chairs, as well as sofas, tables, boxes of clothing and 150 luxury duvets.

The handover is the start of an ongoing relationship with Lifeline in which P&O Cruises will assist the Not for Profit organisation with a wide range of surplus materials from its ships and offices.

Ann Sherry, CEO of Carnival Australia (operators of P&O Cruises) says the cruise line’s expanding fleet and regular refurbishment program meant it could offer Lifeline a flow of goods in large volumes.

Sherry says the partnership is not only a socially conscious decision but an environmentally sound one as well, and presents an ideal way for P&O Cruises to give back to the community.

Dawn O’Neil, CEO of Lifeline Australia, says the charity is thrilled to welcome P&O as a charity supporter.

O’Neil says Lifeline receives more than one million contacts each year from people seeking care – many of whom need everyday items that people take for granted.

O’Neil says Lifeline will start distributing the much needed goods from P&O this week.

The partnership is part of P&O Cruises’ charity program, Carnival Cares, which involves support for three charities – Lifeline Australia, Make-A-Wish and The Catherine Freeman Foundation.
