Charles the Cunard Bear sets off for his Grand Adventure!

This year is a very special milestone as we celebrate ten years working in partnership with Cunard, who are on track to raise a staggering £2million to change young lives.

To celebrate our special partnership anniversary Cunard’s brilliant retail teams have introduced Charles the Bear, exclusively sold in shops on board Queen Mary 2, Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth.

With a donation from every bear supporting The Prince’s Trust this has been a fantastic collaboration – and has seen Charles the Bear literally flying off the shelves.

Exclusively sold on board, Charles has been purchased over 1,725 times by Cunard guests across the globe.

Before travelling to very happy homes, Charles has had a fantastic time on board with the Cunard crew and discovered some exotic destinations all around the world and travelled on some very special crossings. From New York to Southampton, to Sydney and Hong Kong, Japan and Capetown to name a few...what a year Charles has had!

Charles the Bear has also been enjoying life at sea – soaking up the rays, enjoying fabulous meals and relaxing in the spa!

And the adventures don't stop there! Charles’ Grand Adventure has been designed into a beautiful picture book by the talented Cunard Million Makers team to raise money to support young people.

On top of this fantastic collaboration, teams at Cunard at sea and on land have been working tirelessly to raise funds to change young lives for the better. Our £2million milestone is in reach and we are so grateful for everyone who has got behind our partnership to see what the future holds!
