Bournemouth’s three Hallmark Hotels have been donating complimentary cream teas to chemotherapy patients at the Royal Bournemouth Hospital.
As part of their commitment to the local community, Hallmark Hotels Bournemouth have been working with Bournemouth Hospital Charity to provide complimentary cream teas to inspirational cancer patients who are currently undergoing or have recently completed chemotherapy treatments.
The charitable project began with a meeting between the Bournemouth Hallmark Hotel Cluster General Manager, Paul Clarke and the Senior Corporate Fundraiser at Bournemouth Hospital Charity, Maria Tidy. After hearing some incredibly moving and inspirational stories, Paul was keen that three Hallmark hotels should find a way to support chemotherapy patients at Bournemouth Hospital.
Providing an opportunity to escape with family or friends, Paul and the Bournemouth Hallmark Hotels team have now given out over 40 cream tea vouchers to Bournemouth Hospital Charity. The vouchers are valid for a free cream tea at either the Bournemouth Hallmark East Cliff, Carlton, or West Cliff Hotels.
Paul Clarke said:
“After meeting representatives from the Royal Bournemouth Hospital and hearing some truly inspirational stories, we wanted to reward strong individuals who are undergoing chemotherapy treatments or overcoming cancer. The cream tea vouchers are intended to give these individuals the relaxation break they deserve.”
Maria Tidy said:
“We are very grateful for the Hallmark Hotels cream tea donations. We know that they’ll be greatly appreciated by many of our patients who are currently undergoing chemotherapy. I would like to thank Paul and the Hallmark team for bringing a smile to all our faces.”
The Bournemouth Hospital Charity was created to enhance the care and treatment at the Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospital. All the funds they raise through donations, gifts and events are destined to provide additional facilities and new equipment for both staff and patients. Through community and corporate partnerships, the charity has managed to make a difference for the patients, their families and the dedicated staff.
