Hua Hin Marriott Resort & Spa recently teamed up with
several leading hotels and resorts in Hua Hin to teach Thai
school children about the importance of motorcycle safety – and
specifically, wearing a helmet.
On 30th May 2018,
a major CSR activity was held at the Sheraton
Hua Hin Resort & Spa, during which hundreds of kids from local
schools were given motorbike helmets.
Almost 400 children attended the event from three schools in and
around Hua Hin: Ban Smor Prong School, Nong Kae School and BoFai
School. They were able to enjoy a series of fun activities,
including painting their new helmets, while also learning about
the critical issue of road safety.
This annual CSR
event was supported by the local government, led by Khun Bussaba
Chokesuchat, Deputy Mayor of Hua Hin municipality, Khun Sommai
Sooksai, Director of Hua Hin Educational Department, officers from
the Hua Hin traffic police and officers from tourist police, who
helped to educate the children.
It is the third year that this important event
has taken place, as Hua Hin’s
hotel community comes together once again to improve the safety of
its children, many of whom are risking their lives each day simply
by traveling to and from school.
is one of the most important issues facing children in rural
Thailand today. Many kids still travel to and from school by
motorbike, but few wear helmets. Often the reason for this is
simply that they don’t have a helmet to wear, which is why this
initiative is so effective,” said Goetz Bauer, General Manager of
the Hua Hin Marriott Resort & Spa. “By
participating in this helmet event for the third consecutive year
we are aiming to educate even more local children about the
importance of road safety and wearing a helmet. If the helmets we
donate save the life of just one child, this event will have been
a tremendous success. I would like to thank everyone for taking
part this CSR activity and helping to tackle such an important
