Edgbaston Park Hotel partners with St Basils

Edgbaston Park Hotel is delighted to have chosen St Basils as its charity for 2024.

Anyone who’s stayed at Edgbaston Park Hotel will know it prides itself on being a part of the Edgbaston community – a hotel that not only puts its customers and team first, but its local area too. Since 2021, the hotel has partnered with a chosen charity each year to help make a difference to its community.

Last year the team raised £1,220 for Birmingham and Black Country Wildlife Trust, and in 2023 over £1,000 for LoveBrum, a charity that helps small ‘hidden gem’ projects thrive.

This year, the hotel has partnered with St Basils in an effort to keep youngsters off the streets, to find and keep a home, grow their confidence, and develop skills to attract opportunities that will help safeguard their future.

Partnering with St Basils was a natural choice for the Edgbaston Park Hotel team. CEO Richard Metcalfe said ‘St Basils is a charity close to our hearts and the team was unanimous in choosing it for our charity of the year. The role we play in our community is hugely important to us and we are all delighted to be working with St Basils to support the incredible work they do.’

This support will come from several donation drives in the coming months, plus the proceeds from the hotel’s annual family fun day, which will be held in August. Last year’s event proved hugely popular with local families and raised an incredible £1,000 for charity.

Head of Fundraising and Communications at St Basils, Barrie Hodge, added, ‘We are so grateful to the team at Edgbaston Park Hotel for choosing us as their charity partner this year. Their commitment to our cause is truly appreciated.

‘The range of things they are planning to raise funds for what we do is fantastic, and we can’t wait to get started with them. On behalf of all the young people their fundraising will support, thank you’.

Edgbaston Park Hotel is more than a hotel. It’s a community wanting to make a real difference to Birmingham. So, next time you visit, you can be sure of a feel-good stay, knowing that you’re supporting a business that cares more about people than profit.

Details about the hotel’s upcoming fundraising events will be released as soon as they’re confirmed. Make sure to stay in the know by following the hotel on Facebook and Instagram and subscribing to its monthly newsletter.
