Senior managers at an international hotel company have donated their time to five Middlesex voluntary organisations.
Yesterday all the General Managers and Regional Vice Presidents for Hilton UK & Ireland brandished spades, rakes and paint brushes to assist five local Middlesex community organisations with gardening, painting and cleaning on behalf of the Hilton in the Community Foundation.
The beneficiary charities were Brambles Respite Care Home, St. Barts Church, Gables Nursing Home, Oakwood Secondary School and Horley Infants School. The volunteer initiative was part of the Annual General Managers’ conference held at the Hilton London Gatwick Airport.
The six teams, totalling 127 people, were given three hours to complete their missions, which varied from clearing and planting pathways and flowerbeds to painting a play house.
“We wanted to bring a different dimension to our meeting this year,” says Wolfgang M. Neumann, Area President Hilton UK & Ireland, which operates 78 hotels. “This hands-on approach re-iterates the aim of the Hilton in the Community Foundation – to provide for the communities local to our hotels, not just by providing funds but by taking an active interest. We are delighted to help provide a better environment for the people these organisations serve and help.”
