News: Cash for Kids call on Carlton Park


Generous members of staff at the Carlton Park Hotel in Rotherham are hoping to raise hundreds of pounds to support Hallam FM's charity Cash for Kids.

The appeal will see members of staff undertake a range of fundraising activities throughout the year which will see staff members test their cooking skills in a number of culinary challenges and later this year the hotel is planning to host a Superhero family lunch as well as supporting Mission Christmas, the charity’s festive feel-good appeal which tries to ensure no child in the region wakes up on Christmas morning without a present.

Cash For Kids was originally launched by Hallam FM as Help a Hallam Child in the early 1970s and was renamed Cash for Kids in 2008, following the radio station's acquisition by Bauer Media. Over the past twelve months, the charity has supported Rotherham Women's Refuge, South Yorkshire Community Foundation as well as hundreds of children requiring special support to help improve the quality of their lives.

The charity was chosen by the hotel's sales manager Jason Gossop in a bid to help raise funds for children and children's charities throughout Rotherham during the year and is the first time in the long history of the Moorgate hotel that it has named a special charity of year.

Eleanor Stephenson, community manager at the Carlton Park Hotel (pictured, second right), said: "The Carlton Park has been at the heart of local community life in Rotherham for more than 30 years but when it comes to supporting the local community our staff have big hearts too.

"The hotel has previously supported other local charities such as the Rotherham Hospice and Greasborough Co-Operative Funeral Care. This year is the first time the Carlton Park have formally named a charity of the year.

"We wanted to support Cash for Kids as we felt it was a good way of investing back into the local community, particularly as all the money raised by the charity goes directly towards benefiting children across South Yorkshire."

Last year, the charity raised over £1m. Throughout the year Cash for Kids organises fundraising events and initiatives such as the Big Bake Day and Mission Christmas. The Carlton Park will be hosting a family superheroes lunch, taking place on Sunday August 16.

Allan Ogle, charity manager at Cash for Kids (pictured, right), said: "We are excited to have a well-known, South Yorkshire based business such as The Carlton Park helping us to raise funds for Cash for Kids this year.

"As the hotel have previously taken part in fundraising for other local charities, they have knowledge and experience of charity work and fundraising, as well as being a family oriented business and committed to the local community."
