Hoteliers donate PS2,000 towards charity for injured rugby players.
As well as funding new equipment and home adaptations for disabled former players, the trust is there to provide advice on welfare issues, social opportunities and a friendly face whenever needed.
Marie Fagan, general manager of Hilton Cardiff, said: "Rugby is central to the tourism industry in Cardiff as it brings such a high number of visitors to the Welsh capital on international weekends. But not only this, it's central to our culture and represents so many of the qualities we would like to think we possess as a nation: courage, determination and team work."
Edward H Jones, Honorary Secretary and Trustee of the Welsh Rugby Charitable Trust, said: "Every penny of this donation will be used to make the lives of severely injured rugby players in Wales just a little more comfortable.
"Cardiff Hoteliers' Association has shown many acts of kindness towards our injured players and I would like to take this opportunity to thank them for their continued support."
