PINK 9.jpgQueen Victoria might even have been amused. Or perhaps she would have just blushed gently if she had seen the Cunard ship which carries her name bathed in pink today while berthed at Sydney’s Circular Quay. The spectacular event was in aid of Australia’s National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) who officially launched their 2010 fundraising target of $17 million at an event on board. Pink lights illuminated the entire ship from dusk. Peter Shanks, Cunard President and Managing Director, said: “Pink has become synonymous with the fight against breast cancer so we are delighted to offer NBCF the opportunity to boost awareness of research and claim a world first by being the first to illuminate a liner in pink.”
