As a national hotel group, it makes more sense for us to work together to raise money and provide support for selected national charities.
Macmillan Cancer Support
Macmillan Cancer Support has been one of our nominated charities since 2008. At each hotel and head office we have an employee who acts as the charity’s representative and organises a programme of fundraising activities.
As a group we recently raised nearly £3,000 as part of the Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning event and £2,000 from Christmas advertising.
Macmillan launches #notalone campaign to tackle isolation crisis
Our charity partner Macmillan Cancer Support believes that no one should face cancer alone. But according to their research, one in four people diagnosed with cancer lack support from friends and family during treatment and recovery, and it is having a devastating effect. That’s why Macmillan is launching their biggest campaign in years to help tackle this crisis.

Ciarán Devane, Chief Executive of Macmillan Cancer Support, says:
“Isolation can have a truly shattering impact on people living with cancer. Patients are going hungry, missing medical appointments and even deciding to reject treatment altogether which could be putting their lives at risk — all because of a lack of support.”
You can even find out the many other ways you can get involved with Macmillan in your local area to help make sure no one has to face cancer alone.
