During September , a team of keen amateur cyclists working in a variety of roles for the Marriott Hanbury Hotel will be joining an extraordinary challenge, in aid of youth charity The Prince’s Trust; cycling from Glasgow to London a distance of 1461 miles.
They will be participating in a leg of a nationwide cycle tour travelling from the Aberdeen Marriott to the Renaissance St Pancras Hotel in London, in just seven days between 12 & 18 September and covering a total 1,641 miles. Along the way the tour will visit all 63 Marriott International hotels in the UK and 16 Prince’s Trust Centres.
At the same time as the cycle ride the will be carrying out a 24 hour sporting challenge to help reach the fund raising total.
“This is going to be a tremendous challenge for us but we are confident of reaching our goals and raising funds for such a worthy cause as The Prince’s Trust”, said GovertDeketh General Manager of Hanbury Manor.
The hotel is helping to tackle youth unemployment by helping to fund The Prince’s Trust employability courses that focus on developing confidence, motivation and employment skills. Marriott developed the ‘Get into Hospitality’ programme with The Prince’s Trust, which is aimed at job-ready long-term unemployed youth interested in a career within the hospitality industry. In 2014 Marriott offered training to nearly 100 young people - 29 found employment after finishing the course, 14 of them at a Marriott.
The tour will culminate in a welcome reception attended by VIP’s including representatives from the Prince’s Trust, at the Renaissance St Pancras Hotel, Euston Road, London NW1, on the afternoon of Thursday 18 September.
