QHotels raises £82,000 for NSPCC in first year

A year after partnering with NSPCC, QHotels has exceeded its £75,000 target for the charity and raised £82,000.

The three-year partnership, which launched in June 2016, aims to bring guests and employees together across the hotel group to raise vital funds for the children’s charity.

Employees of the hotel group have taken part in a number of fundraising events including the Great North Run, the London Marathon, The Three Peaks Challenge and The Wolf Run.

They have also raced 38 floors to the top of the Gherkin and completed a number of sky dives. Each of its 26 hotels across the UK also hosted charitable community events.

For the second year of its partnership, QHotels is launching a new package which enables organisations arranging an event to donate the 5% cashback they can receive in high street vouchers to the NSPCC.

QHotels customers will also continue to have the option to make a £1 donation to the NSPCC with every online booking.

Caroline Brennan, senior partnerships manager at NSPCC, said: “It has been a real privilege working with the QHotels team in the first year of our partnership. Their commitment to raising money for us has been outstanding and it has been great how they have involved both employees and guests in fundraising drives.”

Michael Purtill, managing director at QHotels said: “We’ve been amazed by the hard work, passion and commitment that has gone into the impressive fundraising schedule over the past year, which has resulted in us surpassing our ambitious target by £7,000.

“With family-friendly hotels across the UK, supporting the NSPCC was a natural fit for QHotels and the response from our guests and employees has been truly inspiring.”
