Since 2009 DFDS has been hosting a Christmas lunch for homeless people on board PEARL SEAWAYS, while the ship is docked in Copenhagen.
Every year about 250-300 guests are boarding the ship to enjoy the grand Christmas buffet with beer, snaps and coffee. The crew is taking a day off to serve the guests. Before the guests leave the ship they get a gift bag and a pair of socks or gloves, knitted by a group of volunteers, something that is welcome on a cold winter day.
The event is made in close cooperation with We Shelter, an organization that has been doing social work for homeless and other vulnerable groups for more than 120 years.
