Case study – Heart of Kent hospice

Heart of Kent Hospice chartered Belmond British Pullman and offered supporters the chance to step back in time aboard vintage carriages and enjoy a four-course, four-hour, lunch journey around the Kent countryside

◆ Belmond British Pullman was repositioned so guests departed from Maidstone, Kent rather than its usual departure station of London Victoria

◆ The Hospice ran a small-scale marketing campaign to generate interest and bookings

◆ Local media were invited to travel on a scheduled departure 6 months before the charter date to showcase the train experience, which gained great support for the event and resulted in front page, regional headlines

◆ The charter sold out in two weeks and a second charter was confirmed to accommodate the demand

◆ Belmond agreed flexible cancellation terms to minimise financial risk to the hospice
