Charity work at Ashford International Hotel

Ashford International Hotel has chosen to support two local charities this year, decided on by a staff vote. These charities are Dandelion Time and the Kent, Sussex and Surrey Air Ambulance Trust.

 Registered charity no: 1136613

Kent's charity for children and their families fragmented by trauma, abuse and neglect.
Dandelion Time provides troubled families with an individually focused therapeutic undertaking. Given time and space in the natural environment and support from therapeutic practitioners, families work together to find ways to restore trust, gain strength and make positive and sustainable changes in their lives.



The Kent, Sussex and Surrey Air Ambulance charity exists to help relieve sick or injured people in South East England and surrounding areas by providing a Helicopter Emergency Medical Service and an Air Ambulance Service for the benefit of the community.

How have we raised money?

Fundraising work that has taken place at Ashford International Hotel to support these two worthy charities includes:

• Charity Rowathon in October in our Gym.
• Various bake sales with yummy cakes made by our staff.
• Car wash in July
• Staff Christmas Party with Race Night to raise money
• Pound on the Pillow
• Housekeeping boot fair

So far in 2013/2014, Ashford has raised over £2,500 in total from the above activities.

In addition to this, Ashford International Hotel have adopted Tugar, the Siberian tiger who lives at Port Lympne Wild Animal Park.

Our Reception Shift Leader Ashley Watson is also running the Brighton Marathon in aid of Royal Marsden Cancer Charity. If you would like to donate, please see the link below:
