Local Hotel teams up with Stafford Food Bank this Christmas
Posted on 4th December 2018 at 09:26
The Best Western Tillington Hall, Stafford have teamed up with ‘House Of Bread’ Stafford Food Bank to help keep up with the 54% increase in people visiting food banks in times of hardship.
A study published by Oxfam in 2014 reports that ‘food aid charities gave more than 20 million meals last year to people in the UK who could not afford to feed themselves’ – A scary number that is on the increase in 2015 and especially hard for families trying to get by at this time of year. Over half a million children in the UK are living in families that are unable to provide a minimally acceptable diet, and the staff at the local landmark hotel want to do their bit to help.
Emily Lewis, Sales Co-Ordinator at the Best Western Tillington Hall has said, “We are working in partnership to support this local organisation to supplement people who need extra help. We look forward to working with House Of Bread to help the community over the Christmas period.
We all know how tight things can get around Christmas time, and want our community to know that we do care, and it feels really nice to have to opportunity to give back”.
The success the hotel has seen over the years has been largely down to its clients and customers, and of course the local people who hold events, come for dinner and more, so Tillington Hall wants to ‘give back’ at this time of year which is a financial struggle for many. They have set up a bin in one of their public areas where guests, staff and the local public are urged to make donations of food, clothing and toiletries along with what the Best Western branded hotel will put forward.
