Hotel Group to Partner with Hospice
McKeever Hotel Group has nominated the Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice as its Charity of the Year and committed to a year-long programme of fundraising activity involving staff, suppliers and guests.
The partnership was the outcome of a companywide consultation with employees and will be supported by its four NI hotels, Dunadry Hotel & Gardens, Corr’s Corner, Dunsilly and Adair Arms.
The new relationship with the NI Children’s Hospice is aligned with the group’s “We Do More” culture and reflects its commitment to best practice, particularly in terms of sustainability and social benefits.
One of the first initiatives to be launched is a coffee fundraising drive, with 5p donated by McKeevers for every cup sold in their hotels. With an average of over 50,000 cups of coffee consumed by guests per year, this alone could generate nearly £2,500 for the charity.
Eddie McKeever, Managing Director of McKeever Hotel Group, said: “This partnership is truly inclusive and has the backing of our entire workforce, which is very important to us.”
