2011 was a truly successful year for us in our fundraising for Help for Heroes and at the beginning of 2012 we were pleased to hand over a cheque for a total of £10,752.40
Monies were raised from various events held at the hotels including quiz nights, a family fun day, a nearly new clothes sales, cake sales and some of the male team members succumbing to a little bit of waxing! In addition to this Help for Heroes wristbands and lapel pins were sold from the reception desks in each of the hotels and at each hotel event Help for Heroes merchandise was being sold.
The cheque was handed over to David Smith who is a local co-ordinator for Help for Heroes and this was done at the Oxford Witney Four Pillars Hotel by some of the Charity Committee.
Following on from this success, Four Pillars Hotels are pleased to launch the Charities of the Year for 2012 which are Vale House in Oxford and the Bristol Royal Children’s Hospital. The charities that the group support are chosen by the staff in the hotels and the decision this year to support two local charities meant that in addition to raising funds for these very worthy causes, we are also able to offer additional practical help and support in many different ways.
We have various fund-raising activities planned throughout the year, details of which can be found at www.four-pillars.co.uk/charity
