Who doesn’t enjoy pulling on a comfy Christmas jumper? December is certainly one of our favourite times of the year, and with the cold weather ever-present and there’s no better feeling cosying up in a Christmas jumper! At Strand Palace, we regularly take part in a number of good causes for charity, and on 12 and 13 December, the team sported an array of outrageous, mischievous and festive jumpers.
The Strand Palace team members were invited to come and show off their best Christmas jumpers looks to support Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day! There was an abundance of spotted reindeers, snowmen, glitter and Santa Clauses throughout the hotel. We even decided to wear our Christmas jumpers two days in a row to extend the magic to our traditional Christmas team lunch!
One of our priorities at Strand Palace is to involve the team in charitable events as often as we can. We have taken part in the “Save the Children – Christmas Jumper Day” every year since 2013. Thanks to the participation and the contribution of our teams, we’re proud to say that we’ve been able to raise £1080.79.
All the funds are donated to Save the Children. This non-profit organisation aims to help children around the globe through different types of actions. One of their projects has helped half a million Syrian refugee children, to rebuild their life in Jordan by providing essential supplies, healthcare, psychosocial support, child protection centres and much more. In Kenya, Save the Children is training volunteer community health workers to bring healthcare, diagnose, carry out check-ups, and treat child malnutrition and advise pregnant mothers. Their support is essential where malnutrition is common and children are exposed to killer diseases like pneumonia or malaria. Learn more about Save the Children.
We’re committed to having a continuously positive impact on our local and global communities. In 2019 we’ve supported various charitable organisations including “Macmillan Biggest Coffee Morning”, “Wear it Pink” and much more. Discover all our charitable involvement.
