Wivenhoe House supports local charities

The coffers of a dozen local worthy causes have been boosted over the last year, thanks to support from staff at Wivenhoe House.

Every month the hotel employees decide on a deserving recipient in the Colchester area to receive a voucher for afternoon tea for two which they can then use as a prize or put up for auction to help raise funds for their cause.

Recipients include Colchester Neonatal Unit, Colchester Women’s Refuge, Wivenhoe Town Cricket Club and Millfields Primary School.

General Manager Oliver Brown said: “We really appreciate the support the local community gives to Wivenhoe House and this is just one of our ways to say thank you.”

We welcome requests for charity donations and all requests can be sent through to us on info@wivenhoehouse.co.uk FAO Steph Wilson

Whether approaching Wivenhoe House from London and the South or Ipswich and the North via the A12, take the exit marked Colchester (A133). Follow the A133 towards Clacton, ignore the entrance to the Knowledge Gateway, continue along the A133 then take the B1028 for Wivenhoe before turning right into Boundary Road, then right again into Park Road. The entrance for Wivenhoe House is shared with the University of Essex but Park Road leads you through Wivenhoe Park and you will be able to see the glorious house from the road.
