Two hotels in Cardiff have recently donated hundreds of items to Emmaus South Wales after receiving an email from a member of the support team in the Community home, asking for duvets and pillows. The two hotels, Radisson Blu Cardiff and The Clayton Hotel Cardiff were keen to support Emmaus South Wales and were able to donate a huge amount of items including duvets, pillows, cushions, mattress toppers and even bath robes!

Emmaus South Wales were amazed at the generosity of the hotels and Anne Miles, the Sales Manager of Radisson Blu in Cardiff explained that the timing of the request had been just right..."We're currently undergoing a soft refurbishment in the hotel, meaning all of the soft furnishings and bedding are being replaced with new ones. Emmaus contacted us at just the right time, meaning that all of these items can now be put to good use, rather than being taken to landfill!".

One of the Companions who went with the Van Team to collect the donations said "It's good to have a relationship with big companies like that. Hopefully we will be able to work together in the future to receive more donations." 

Emmaus South Wales heavily relies on donations and support from local people and businesses and are therefore very grateful for any donations. Emmaus South Wales would once again like to thank the team at Radisson Blu Cardiff and The Clayton Hotel Cardiff for their kind donations and support.
