Richmond Hill hotel kickstarts community acts of kindness

Located in the heart of the idyllic town, Richmond Hill Hotel has been working closely with the community to celebrate its 150th anniversary.

Throughout this year, Richmond Hill Hotel will mark the occasion of its century and a half by pledging a variety of donations and activities.

As part of the celebrations, as well as special guest offers, the hotel is boosting its community social responsibility by donating 150 hours of volunteering, 150 afternoon teas to local care homes, planting 150 trees, and giving 150kg of donations to Shooting Star Children’s Hospice.

A team of eight colleagues spent a day volunteering at Shooting Star Children’s Hospices in Hampton, tackling a variety of tasks such as weeding in the gardens, painting furniture and jet washing.

As part of volunteering hours, a group also took part in a local litter pick, gathering multiple bags of rubbish, and helping to keep London’s greenest borough clean.

Vineyard Community, a charity which offers crisis, food poverty, social inclusion and holistic support work within the local community, received thirty afternoon teas to giveaway to people in need for a special treat.

Charlotte Alldis, Marketing Director of Richmond Hill Hotel, said: ‘2024 is a very special year for us at Richmond Hill Hotel as we continue celebrations for our 150th, and to celebrate with the local community we’ve set up targets to offer our support and time to local charities close to our heart.

“We’ve kickstarted some of our activities with our recent volunteering day, litter pick and we were delighted to gift Vineyard Community with afternoon teas which locals could enjoy.

“Not only do we want to thank our loyal customers by offering limited edition offers like our £150 rooms, but it’s also important to give back to our community which is why we’ve set out four considerable objectives to achieve this year as our way to support the local area.”

Meanwhile, the hotel is offering lucky guests the opportunity to stay for only £150 per night, an offer which due to popularity has been extended.

Richmond Hill Hotel opened its doors to holidaymakers and Richmond locals since 1874. The charming Georgian building is said to have been built in 1726 however began operating as a hotel 150 years ago.

In 2019, the Surrey hotel enjoyed a major refurbishment offering 144 bedrooms and suites, all thoughtfully designed and modernised whilst retaining many original features showcasing the history and heritage of the original building.
