Hotel staff raise PS1,500 for hospice.
HOTEL staff have raised nearly PS1,500 for Cardiff City Hospice through a series of fundraising fitness activities.
Thanks to the combined efforts of workers and generous donations from the public, Village Hotel Club Cardiff has hit its target of PS1,000 and is now looking to double that.
Members of the hotel team have taken part in endurance races and extreme fitness challenges, and the money raised will be used to fund much-needed care for those with life-limiting illnesses within their homes, and from the charity's centre in Whitchurch.
Earlier this month the hotel's operations manager, Ashley Cruickshank, completed the Ride London 100 event. This followed the sterling efforts of Ellie and Jake, who endured Wales' "toughest obstacle race", the INVCBL challenge, as well as the Fishguard Triathlon Sprint.
In addition, other members of the team took part in the Margam Pursuit 10k and the Cardiff 5K Race for Victory.
Simon Chainey, senior general manager at Village Hotel Club Cardiff, said: "The Cardiff team have been doing a fantastic job of keeping fit and raising money for charity this year. Some of the distances they have been running, swimming and cycling is unbelievable, and I'm not surprised that the target has been exceeded.
"We're now hoping to smash our new target and raise as much as we can for Cardiff City Hospice."
In addition to the great amount raised for Cardiff City Hospice, Village Hotel Club Cardiff also hosted and supported the launch of Cancer Research Wales' 2020 Kilimanjaro Trek, resulting in donations of more than PS45,000 for the charity.
