Jupiter Hotels makes GBP240,000 donation to Breast Cancer Care

Jupiter Hotels has donated GBP240,000 to Breast Cancer Care as the final part of its five-year group charity partnership programme.

The donation was raised through staff contributions, guest incentives and auction events at the 27 Mercure and two Holiday Inn properties managed by the company in the UK.
Speaking of the final donation, Megan Hewlett, Account Manager, Breast Cancer Care, says: “It’s been a real pleasure working with Jupiter Hotels over the years, we are really grateful to all of the hotels, staff and guests who have enthusiastically given their time and money to support our services. This incredibly generous cheque is going to ensure that we can continue to provide care, support and information to anyone affected by breast cancer in the UK.”
As is company policy, Jupiter Hotels’ charity partners are rotated every few years to spread support and awareness to as many in need as possible, so for 2018 and beyond, the company has a new charity partnership with Rays of Sunshine, a national children’s charity, which brightens the lives of seriously and terminally ill children (aged 3-18) and their families across the UK. Their work includes granting special wishes, working with children’s hospitals and hospices to host activity days and grant Hospital Ward Wishes as well as organising large-scale outings and events.
Jane Sharpe, CEO, Rays of Sunshine, says: “Rays of Sunshine is absolutely delighted that Jupiter Hotels is supporting us and we want to make this a meaningful and successful partnership. It is only with the support of our valued partners, such as Jupiter Hotels, that we can continue to make magical wishes come true and create special memories. We are excited to be working alongside Jupiter to make a real impact on the lives of many more seriously ill children.”
Shane Harris, CEO, Jupiter Hotels says:, “We are delighted to be working with Rays of Sunshine as our new chosen charity, a worthwhile cause which is close to all of our hearts at Jupiter Hotels. All of our hotels have shown real enthusiasm and commitment to our charity initiative which is incredibly important in our continued collective effort to give back to the community and make a difference to the lives of those around us.”
