Park Inn by Radisson hotel, our Manchester Million friends, have clocked up £1,025 in just one month from their 50p donation campaign.

The charitable guests who dine at the Park Inn have helped the hotel reach this whopping figure in such a short time by ordering food from Park Inn’s House Favourites menu. As part of its pledge to raise over £10,000 for Forever Manchester, the hotel committed to donating 50p whenever a guest ordered some of the most popular dishes from the menu, including fish and chips and steak and Manchester ale pie.

The campaign, which did not see prices rise to allow for the donation, has been a huge success and in celebration, a cheque was presented by General Manager, Neil Raw to Head of Business Development at Forever Manchester, Jean Mills.

Neil said, “We have been thrilled with the success of such a simple campaign. Yes, the 50p donation does affect our profits as it is not a discretionary donation but that was the decision and commitment we made to our CSR agenda and to Forever Manchester and we were delighted  to make the first official cheque presentation.  This is just one of the many ways we are supporting the charity but we believe it puts our charitable ambitions right in front of our customers and they have clearly embraced it as during that month, we did see an increase in orders from this section of the menu.”

On receipt of the cheque, Jean Mills added, “We are delighted at the innovative ways that Park Inn chooses to support Forever Manchester; both in terms of donations and the way their customers can see their commitment to local charity.” 

After adopting Forever Manchester as their local charity, the hotel team are now aiming to raise in excess of £10,000 over the next 12 months to support our Manchester Million campaign, which aims to get businesses to commit to raising or donating £1,000 to aid the work of grassroots projects at the heart of our local communities.
