Our restaurant doors may have been closed this Mother's Day in the ongoing fight against Covid-19 however that didn't stop our dedicated teams from spreading a little joy...
During this uncertain time there is one thing that we are sure of and that is supporting our local community is at the heart of everything we do at Hand Picked Hotels.
We wanted to deliver a little slice of care to those who are tirelessly working to take care of others in this time of need. So our hotel teams boxed up the goods and set off on the mission.
Woodlands Park Hotel, (Cobham, Surrey)
Our Executive Head Chef and Operations Manager donated all of our food items from Mother's Day preparations to all 50 residents at the Hartfield House care home in Leatherhead.
Ettington Park Hotel (Stratford-upon-avon, Warwickshire)
It was gateaux and afternoon tea for NHS staff at the Ellen Badger Hospital in Shipton. They used it to celebrate Mother's Day with the patients who were unable to have family visit.
Chilston Park Hotel (Lenham, Kent)
Our Head Chef made a special delivery to Chippendayle Lodge care home in Harrietsham: Hand Picked boxes filled with scones, clotted cream, jam and pastries plus apples, lemons, oranges, bananas and eggs for all 46 of the residents.
Rookery Hall Hotel & Spa (Nantwich, Cheshire)
100 cream teas were delivered to Leighton Hospital so all NHS staff could enjoy a well earned scone with jam and cream - a little thank you for all their hard work.
Fawsley Hall Hotel & Spa (Fawsley, Northamptonshire)
Individual packages filled with scones and a couple of sweet treats to give those in urgent care at St Cross Hospital (Rugby) a little pick me up.
And our Sales Teams have also been doing their best to send a little joy. This care package made its way to Maidstone & Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust based at Maidstone Hospital, even Byron Bear made the journey as a mascot!
