Edwardian Hotels London, giving back

Giving back to and supporting our communities is an important part of our business culture. We support charities on an international, national and local level.

On a corporate level, we have supported these charities in the past 12 months:

The Francis Crick Institute

On 1st January 2015, Edwardian Hotels London became official corporate fundraising partner to Cancer Research UK's Francis Crick Institute for the next 5 years, with an ambition to raise £1.5 million. The Francis Crick Instiute is a centre of a medical excellence in London, which sees 1,200 scientists from 47 countries coming together under one roof to accelerate the rate of progress in tackling the major diseases facing the global population.

The Springboard Charity

The Springboard Charity is a forerunner in helping young, unemployed and disadvantaged people improve their prospects for economic well being. They provide opportunities for sustainable employment, or vibrant careers in hospitality, leisure and tourism. Springboard is our preferred charity for our restaurants and bars, and we donate everytime you choose our charity dish from the menu.

Edwardian Charity Fund

We are very proud that the Edwardian Hotels Charity Fund plays a significant role in supporting important causes, which our hosts are passionate about. The charitable committee takes place three times a year where hosts are invited to present to their cause. We supported 13 hosts' charities to the value of £23,000 during 2015.
