Top Fundraising Hotel of the Year

11 April 2018

The team at Mercure Leeds Parkway Hotel were delighted to have raised a staggering £3,761.38 for Breast Cancer Care, the hotel’s chosen charity, during 2017.

The whole team got involved with fund raising ideas and activities to raise money for this worthy cause. Events included a cake sale; hotel team members Wayne, Dario and Lauren got their legs waxed; leisure club members, and staff joined forces for a sponsored bike ride by in the leisure club; and staff even washed cars for customers who were staying over in the hotel.

The majority of the money raised came from selling raffle tickets at the Christmas parties where some fantastic prizes were on offer. Those attending the party nights dug deep into their pockets buying raffle tickets to support the charity, and be in with a chance of winning one of the many prizes. The prizes included an overnight stay at the hotel, afternoon tea for two, two complimentary tickets to upcoming events at the hotel, and a three month leisure club membership.

The team were excited to have raised this amount, Lisa Altinoluk, Conference & Events Manager at the hotel said: “We were thrilled with the amount we raised at the hotel for Breast Cancer Care. Everyone got involved with the fundraising efforts, from washing customers’ cars to selling raffle tickets. Our customers were very generous with their support, we couldn’t have done it without them. With lots of different events throughout last year we had fun raising money which will be used to help those affected by breast cancer.”
