Holiday Inn Nottingham, one of the chain’s flagship boutique hotels, has announced a charitable partnership with Tottenham Hotspur and England footballer Jermaine Jenas.
Jermaine is the co-founder of the Aquinas Foundation. The foundation work within schools to help tackle areas of concern, such as truancy, bullying, gang culture and racism. Holiday Inn Nottingham will be working with the foundation to help support and promote its activities across the East Midlands.
The hotel, including the luxury Dakota Bar and Grill, will be donating event space, as well as organising fundraising activities to raise money for the charity.
The Aquinas Foundation is the second of two charities that Holiday Inn Nottingham will be supporting this coming year. The first to be announced was the Parents Association for Seriously Ill Children (PASIC), which is based at Nottingham Queens Medical Centre.
Commenting on the announcement Jermaine said:
“I am delighted to be working in partnership with Holiday Inn Nottingham. The work that the Aquinas Foundation is carrying out continues to produce some fantastic results.
“The help and support that the hotel is providing will enable us to expand the charity’s reach even further, allowing the important work the foundation carries out to have an impact on more young peoples lives.”
Anna Parsons, manager of Holiday Inn Nottingham added:
“Both the Aquinas Foundation and PASIC are incredible organisations. The projects that they carry out are invaluable and a great number of people feel the positive effects of their hard work.
“We here at the hotel are delighted to be working with them. All of our members of staff will be pulling in the same direction to help raise awareness and as much money as possible over the coming year.”
