QHotels brings Christmas to Childline

Team members from the QHotels Central Booking office and colleagues from The Queens, have been busy bringing the Christmas spirit to Childline.

Decking the halls of Childline Leeds with tinsel and baubles, The QHotels  team are hoping to share the festive cheer by decorating the base ahead of the busy festive period.

Jason Scothern, Central Booking Manager of QHotels, said: "The volunteers from Childline do such a fantastic job in being there for children whenever they need them - even on Christmas day.

"I wanted to do something that lifted the spirits of volunteers, no matter what challenging circumstances they were helping vulnerable children through. I've already been raising money for the NSPCC and Childline, and will be running next year's London Marathon for the charity, but it's nice to do something a little extra."

In addition to the decorations, The Queens hotel team put on an early Christmas feast for volunteers before their shift.

General Manager of The Queens hotel Wayne Topley said: "I'm immensely proud of my team, and those at all 26 QHotels, for getting so involved with our charity partners the NSPCC and Childline.

"They have enthusiastically taken on the task of fundraising for the charity, often in their own time, and have also been very keen to come up with new ideas and get involved with everything they can.

"We're thrilled to be able to provide catering as a treat for volunteers. They give so much time to support children going through some of the toughest times imaginable, and this is our way of saying thank you to them."

Darren Worth, Childline supervisor at the Leeds base, said: "The volunteers were ecstatic when they saw the wonderful job The QHotels team did with the decorations.

"Christmas is a really busy time for us as there is always a big increase in the number of children getting in contact over the festive season.

"Childline is open all day, every day, with our base in Leeds running shifts on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Sundays. This means volunteers will be working Christmas morning this year, so having a nicely decorated room for them to work in is more vital than ever."
