Hotel raises charity cash through festive fundraising
Staff at a Newmarket hotel raised more than £500 for charity with a host of festive fundraising activities including a Christmas bake sale.
Bedford Lodge Hotel and Spa raised the money for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH), which was selected as the hotel’s charity of the year for 2018.
Staff also took part in the hotel’s annual Christmas jumper day and donned their best festive sweaters for a £5 donation to the charity.
The festive fundraising rounds off a year of activities and the proceeds will go towards the annual amount raised for EACH at the end of the working year.
Noel Byrne, chief executive at Bedford Lodge Hotel and Spa, said: “East Anglia Children’s Hospice does fantastic work helping families in our local area, and I think this has truly inspired the team with our fundraising initiatives this year, which have culminated in this lovely festive finale.
“We hope that our donation will play some part in supporting EACH in continuing its important work.
“On top of our charity of the year fundraising, Bedford Lodge Hotel and Spa is always keen to support national charity initiatives, as well as our staff members’ personal charitable activities.”
