THE PIG Hotels Donate 190 Overnight Stays to #TreatOurNHS
THE PIG Hotels, to mark their re-opening (whenever that might be), will be giving the first night across every hotel to members of the NHS from within a 25-mile radius of each hotel.
This donation is to join the fabulous initiative #treatournhs set up by founder Sarah White. THE PIGs imagine that there will be an NHS house party feel on the opening night and the staff at each respective PIG hotel looks forward to spoiling the medics and carers with their 25-mile menu and veg and fruit from the hotels' famed kitchen gardens.
Of this initiative Robin Hutson, Chairman of The Pig Hotels says, "I think it’s true for most people in this country that in the past we have perhaps taken our NHS and Care workers for granted………….not so now! At this time when we really need them, the whole country is showing their deep appreciation and respect in many ways for how they put their lives on the line every day to keep us all safe. This initiative, to use our hotels to give some of them a treat when eventually we can re-open is really the least we can do. In Cornwall the NHS will be the first guests ever to stay at THE PIG-at Harlyn Bay, where the much anticipated opening has been delayed due to the Covid – 19 pandemic "
#treatournhs is a very recently started campaign initiated by Sarah where holiday letting companies have given a week or two (or vouchers) in some of their cottages to any NHS workers once we're out the other side of Covid 19. Within the space of a week, more than 150 holiday homes have come on board, from castles in Scotland and cabins in Devon to chateaux in France (some are featured on Escape to the Chateau DIY). There has even been a holiday home in Arizona and a villa in Majorca offering a week’s stay. To date Sarah has been on Radio 5 Live, BBC Devon and BBC news last night interviewed live by Sophie Raworth.
THE PIGs are the first hotel group to come on board and they hope that others in the industry will follow suit. The stays at each PIG hotel will be fully inclusive on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis. There will be a nominations page on The Pig website in due course - thepighotel.com For guests wanting to stay at The Pigs after they re-open visit www.thepighotel.com
