Norwich hotel donates proceeds of a year’s fundraising to Marie Curie
A Norwich hotel has donated the proceeds of a year of fundraising to a national healthcare charity.
The Maids Head raised £711.03 for Marie Curie through a special murder mystery evening, planting daffodil bulbs, a donation in lieu of its Christmas card, and collection boxes.
Charlotte Billington, a receptionist at the Tombland hotel, also completed a sponsored parachute jump.
Christine Malcolm, the hotel’s general manager, said: “I would particularly like to thank all our guests who contributed to Marie Curie collection boxes and Charlotte Billington for bravely completing a parachute jump in aid of the charity.”
Hugo Stevenson, community fundraiser for Marie Curie in Norfolk, added: “It was brilliant that such a high-profile local business chose to support Marie Curie.”
This year The Maids Head is supporting the Lord Mayor of Norwich and Sheriff’s civic charity, Norwich Integration Partnership.
