Fred Olsen Cruise Lines has donated more than £33,000 of food to causes in need in Scotland.
Donations were made from its four ocean ships in lay-up in Rosyth with the help of food distribution charity FareShare.
More than 30 pallets were taken from Balmoral, Braemar, Boudicca and Black Watch.
Thomas Rennesland, Fred Olsen’s hotel operations director said: “We are used to feeding in excess of 4,000 guests and crew across our fleet every day, and while we have not taken on any additional fresh produce since we paused our operations in March – other than that required to feed our crew – our stores and freezers were fully stocked and ready for cruising as normal.
“As our ships have been in the Rosyth area since March it seemed only fitting to donate these additional food items to those who need it most in Scotland.
“The crew on board have worked extremely hard, in addition to their usual duties, to prepare all of the food items so that they are ready for collection by FareShare and I would like to thank all involved for their efforts for this very worthy cause.”
Teresa McGoldrick, FareShare regional food officer Scotland, said:
“The support from Fred Olsen Cruise Lines is the equivalent of 30,000 meals to the most vulnerable people. That is the amazing difference this donation and others like it make to the lives of people in our communities. Heartfelt thank you from us all.”
