Starwood Hotels continue their Star streak in community

The Sheraton and Le Meridien Hotels (part of the Starwood Group of hotels) continue their unbeaten track record of helping local communities, this time with 2 projects helping some of the most vulnerable people in Hammersmith and Fulham.

On Tuesday, 28th July a group of business volunteers arrived at Age Concern in Fulham to organise a tea party for the elderly service users that Age Concern supports.  The volunteers brought decorations and a sumptuous, five star buffet for the guests to indulge themselves in.  After the meal the guests were put into teams to play against each other in a general knowledge quiz, which everyone thoroughly enjoyed!  A wonderful speech was delivered at the end of the afternoon by the Chairman of the committee, who was grateful to the volunteers and Works4U staff for the time and effort taken to organise the day.

3 weeks later another group of Starwood volunteers arrived at St Vincents Care Home to improve their garden.  The care home is based in Hammersmith and they offer care and support to patients with long term illnesses and dementia.  The garden required a much needed revamp and the volunteers spent the day uprooting weeds, cutting back shrubs and picking up hundreds of cigarette butts!  Kevn Henry, Manager of St Vincents thanked the volunteers ‘for the fantastic work….carried out on our garden…The residents, relatives and staff were very pleased and extremely grateful’.  The Starwood volunteers were also pleased with the outcomes of both challenges, stating that they felt a great sense of accomplishment, teamwork and felt good about giving back to the local community.

If you would like to have a team of business volunteers help your charity, or if you are a business with a team who wants to get involved in the local community then contact Works4U on 020 8741 9876 or email enquiries@works-4u.com
