Investing in our Communities

Our aim is to use our skills, experience and financial resources to support local and national initiatives, which encourage our team members' involvement and positively impact the communities in which they live and work.

2012 Achievements

  • £42,000 raised by QHotels teams for a variety of local charities. Some of the most notable fundraising activities were driven by the hotel leisure clubs, who raised £3724 from a Rowathon in September.
  • The biggest fundraiser in 2012 was £24,000 raised in support of a cycle ride from John O'Groats to Lands End by Dave Heap, QHotels' Leisure and Spa Manager and 2 of his close friends. This was done to raise funds for Acorn Children's Hospice and Alder Hey Hospital, both of which supported his daughter Jasmin, who suffered from a terminal illness, Sanfilippo Disease, and who sadly died aged 12 on 1st March 2011.

  • QHotels carbon offsetting scheme for conference delegates was relaunched. Funds from this scheme support Kibale Reforestation in Uganda. The project aims to establish new forest cover over 6213 hectares of degraded land benefitting employment, biodiversity and reducing greenhouse gases.
  • A Charity Partner of "Meetings Industry Meeting Needs", a charity specialising in supporting worthy causes relevant to the events industry for 2012.
  • Partner of the British Bee Keepers Association (BBKA) hosting their AGM and developing a series of beekeeping weekends in 2013 to teach participants how to keep bees.
  • Placements and Educational Placements - We actively worked with a wide number of schools and colleges throughout the UK supporting on careers programmes and presentations, and offer a significant number of placements each year, with an increasing number of placement students then securing permanent employment with QHotels after completing their studie.
  • We also offered Apprenticeships/NVQs levels 1-3 in a wide number of departments along with external accreditation of existing training at every opportunity.

2013 Objectives

  • To raise a target of £20,000 through a series of hotel and leisure club activities.
  • We have recently appointed a dedicated HR resource to focus on expanding the apprenticeships and external accreditation currently offered in 2013, and so help contribute towards helping young people into work and improve social mobility in general.

Staff at QHotels are taking part in the Moon Walk on 10th May 2014 to support Breast Cancer. This involves power walking either a half or full marathon overnight and is a fantastic challenge to raise money for a very worthy cause. For more information please visit the website.
