Through various fundraising initiatives including a percentage of direct bookings going to the homelessness charity, they are hoping to raise over £4,000 for the duration of the year. They have also generously offered several auction and raffle prizes to help with the charities fundraising efforts in these very difficult times.
The contemporary canal side hotel holds great memories for St Basils chief executive Jean Templeton, who says:
“When I joined St Basils 22 years ago, we held our first whole organisation conference at the Campanile. I still remember it well as it was the start of a collaborative approach to our work and an introduction for me to all our amazing colleagues and their passion for what we do. The Campanile therefore has a special place in my memory and to be working with them again, feels like Karma in this our fiftieth year”
Hotel deputy manager Juliana Resurexi said:
“Most of us are lucky enough to have enjoyed growing up with a caring, loving family and having positive experiences to look back on, but we know not everyone is so fortunate. Vulnerable young people who face challenges, including homelessness, need support, so it’s fantastic that St Basils is there to make a real difference for them when they need it the most. Campanile has always been a committed brand, and having got to know the charity, we were impressed with how tirelessly it works day and night to make the lives of young people better. Choosing St Basils as our local charity means we can focus our efforts on raising funds and awareness about its important work.”
