Campanile Hotel Birmingham in Chester Street, Aston, is set to stir up support for Macmillan Cancer by taking part in the world’s biggest coffee morning on Friday, September 26.
It is the first time the hotel has taken part in the fundraising initiative which encourages individuals and businesses across the UK to hold a coffee morning and raise money for people living with cancer.
The annual event began in 1990 and raised a record £20 million nationwide last year.
The Campanile coffee morning will take place in the hotel’s newly refurbished restaurant and lounge area from 9am and guests will be able to enjoy a selection of cakes, tea and coffee.
Campanile Hotel Birmingham is one of 19 hotels part of the Louvre Hotels Group taking part in the event and a competition has been set-up to see which hotel can rally the most support.
Alex McLean, general manager at Campanile Hotel Birmingham, said: “We are really looking forward to hosting our first world’s biggest coffee morning and show our support for Macmillan Cancer.
“The event is open to everyone and we have already started to invite a number of businesses on the estate as well as our hotel guests and those living in the local community.
“We are hoping to raise as much money as possible and hopefully beat the other 18 Louvre Hotels Group hotels taking part in the event.”
Juliet Hayes, national sales manager at Louvre Hotels UK, added: “As well as raising money for a really worthwhile cause, the coffee mornings are a great way to bring people from the local community together.
“We are confident that each coffee morning will be a success and it is great to see a bit of healthy rivalry between the hotels.
“We have hosted a number of fundraising event throughout the year to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support and deputy managers from each Campanile UK Hotel will soon be taking part in a 10km walk in the Yorkshire Dales to boost the fundraising pot.”
