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
