QHotels is celebrating a successful first year in partnership
with the NSPCC, raising an outstanding £82,000 for the charity,
exceeding its initial target of £75,000.
The three-year partnership, which launched in June 2016, aims to

miles in a number of challenges throughout the year including the
Great North Run, the London Marathon, The Three Peaks Challenge and
The Wolf Run.

completed a number of sky dives.

to get involved, from golf days and Easter egg hunts to summer

QHotels customers will also continue to have the option to make
a £1 donation to the NSPCC with every online booking.
