The Grand Hotel to Raise Thousands of Pounds for St Leonard’s Hospice

The Grand Hotel in York are looking to fundraise for St Leonard’s Hospice as part of the Annual Accumulator Challenge.

The premise of the Accumulator Challenge is simple. Firstly teams receive a loan of £30, then they try turning it into as much money as possible over a 30-day period.

Last year the hotel managed to raise £8,500 for the hospice as part of the same challenge, and already they’ve surpassed this achievement! From quiz nights to raffles, the team have been busy organising plenty of fundraising events – with many more to come throughout the rest of March. There was even a Taste of Yorkshire Dinner organised for 50 lucky diners, with a menu curated by Legacy Head Chef Ahmed Abdalla and Delifresh Young Chef of the Year Harry Blades.

The hotel’s Corporate Social Responsibility champions Caroline Randall and Siobhan Spoor says the events reflect the massively important work for the community.

“It’s a great opportunity for the hotel to work together creatively whilst supporting a wonderful cause. Our Kitchen team loved creating this Yorkshire-themed menu and were thrilled to be able to showcase their talents for such a worthy event.”

An awards ceremony will be held on Monday 27th March, hosted by Delta Marriott which will see the different teams winning awards at the end of the challenge.
