Whitbread Hotels and Restaurants has raised £1
million for its nominated charity, Great Ormond Street Hospital
Children’s Charity (GOSHCC) in less than a year since announcing
The money raised will go towards helping the
hospital replace some of its oldest clinical buildings. The
redevelopment will see a transformation of the hospital
environment and allow the hospital to better treat more children
in state-of-the-art surroundings.
Whitbread Hotels and Restaurants
comprises of the Premier Inn, Beefeater Grill, Brewers Fayre,
Table Table and Taybarns brands.
Since Whitbread first began fundraising for GOSHCC,
hundreds of staff working for Whitbread, have carried out a number of fundraising events, such as triathlons, swim-a-thons,
cycle rides and family fun days. Premier Inn guests have also contributed to the charity with online donations.
Great Ormond Street Hospital is in the process of redeveloping
some of the oldest parts of the hospital so that families can benefit from world-class care in 21st century facilities and have
more space to be together at the bedside.
The £1 million that
Whitbread, its guests and suppliers, have raised will support the
hospital in achieving these aspirations.
Ewins Business Development Director said, “On behalf of
thousands of our team members and millions of guests who have been
a part of our fundraising this last year I am extremely proud to
say that we have reached £1 million – a phenomenal achievement
which will help some of the sickest children from all over the UK. As we approach our one year anniversary supporting Great
Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity it has been hugely
inspiring to have seen how hard our teams have worked to achieve
this great milestone. Be it marathon running, car washing
in the snow, scaling great heights or battling the elements to
abseiling down our tallest Premier Inn’s or volunteering on behalf
of the business at GOSHCC events, our teams have embraced the
challenge along with our guests and supporters. Thank you to
Neal Donnelly, Director of Corporate
Partnerships at Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity
“We would like to thank everyone at Whitbread Hotels and
Restaurants for their hard work and generosity in raising an
incredible £1 million for the charity. This money will be put to
really good use, helping us transform the hospital and make a real
difference for our young patients and their families.”
