DFDS is partnering with research charity Breast Cancer Now to raise funds to support the organisation’s work in beating breast cancer.

The ferry operator is donating £5 to the charity for every booking made on its Dover to Calais or Dunkirk services, through a dedicated ‘Think Pink’ page on the its website.

Fares for travel are from £35 each way for a car and up to nine people and customers can also choose to match the donation and add-on an extra £5 to the charity if they wish. The Think Pink promotion will be live to November 30 for travel until March 23, 2018.

Today staff from the ferry company will also ‘Wear it Pink’ in support of the charity, while six employees will run a relay marathon from Newhaven port to Dover, covering 75 miles between them, to raise further funds. The total amount raised, will be matched and trebled by DFDS to further support the cause.

Pete Akerman from DFDS added: “We are delighted to be working with the country’s leading breast cancer research charity, whose work is instrumental in beating this deadly disease. We hope that with our simple donation process at the point of booking, we can raise a significant amount to help support this worthy cause and get Breast Cancer Now that bit closer to their 2050 target of all women diagnosed with the disease, surviving.”
