The Holiday Place raises £2,200 for UNICEF Nepal Earthquake Appeal

Last Friday, 15th October The Holiday Place held a special fundraising event to donate to UNICEF Nepal Earthquake Appeal and help the victims of the two recent Nepal earthquakes. With this initiative The Holiday Place wanted to put their grain of sand in offering a little relief to the lives of the most vulnerable after the natural disasters that caused great damage to infrastructure, cost thousands of lives and left many in Nepal without homes and basic needs.

The Holiday Place raises £2,200 for UNICEF Nepal Earthquake Appeal

A special raffle was organised last Friday at The Holiday Place to raise funds for the UNICEF Nepal Earthquake Appeal.

Staff were invited to buy a £20 ticket to be in the chance of winning a total of five holidays and 14 other assorted prizes. The money collected for all tickets went directly towards the UNICEF charity helping the most vulnerable children in Nepal, while there was also the option of donating separately and those who didn't wish to participate in the raffle were free to give as much or as little as they wanted.

Sponsoring The Holiday Place with an amazing collection of prize giveaways in the raffle, some of our partners donated hotel stays, hampers, rum bottles and goody bags.

Colin Pegler, Managing Director at Resort Marketing International in partnership with Elite Resorts gave a seven-night all-inclusive stay for two adults at either of these resorts (to be chosen by the winner): The Club Barbados, St James Morgan Bay in St Lucia, St James Club and The Verandah Resort and Spa in Antigua.

Veranda Resorts in Mauritius donated an amazing five free nights for two at the Veranda Pointe Aux Biches resort on an all-inclusive basis.

Martin Grass, Director at SuperClubs gave away a five-night all-inclusive stay for two at either Hedonism II in Jamaica or at the SuperClubs Breezes Bahamas, to be chosen by the winner.

Haytham Omar, General Manager at Rixos Rixos Bab Al Bahr donated a four-night stay for two adults and two children at the Rixos Bab Al Bahr on an all-inclusive basis.

Lastly, Doubletree by Hilton Dubai gave away a three-night stay for two at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel and Residences Dubai – Al Barsha on a Bed and Breakfast basis.

Runners up in the raffle had a choice of fantastic other prizes to choose from:

  • iPod Nano (courtesy of Resort Marketing)

  • Jessica's Prescriptive Manicure at Bombshells Nails
  • Meal for two at Black Lion

  • Bottle of Pink Pigeon Rum donated by LUX* Resorts
  • 2 cinema tickets for a film of winner's choice at the Tricycle Cinema
  • 2 Goody bags from Hard Rock Hotels

At the end a total of £2,200 was raised for UNICEF's Nepal Earthquake Appeal, showing how everyone at The Holiday Place had dug deep into their pockets for this important charity where the funds will go straight towards helping improve the lives of millions of vulnerable children in Nepal that have lost their homes, schools or family members and who now live in precarious conditions.
