Somaliland benefit from Jurys Inn upgrade
HOTEL staff donated hundreds of televisions to an organisation which helps change the lives of less fortunate people in Somaliland.
Jurys Inn Heathrow recently upgraded its screens and in return gave away 350 analogue television sets previously used, to the Almis Women’s Organisation.
These will then be shipped to Somaliland and distributed to various not-for-profit organisations in the country.
The hotel has supported the Almis since it started in 2009, and has donated furniture, textiles, and clothing which has benefitted schools and orphanages over the years.
The previous donation saw hotel sweatshirts and uniforms given to a group of men in August 2011.
Donal Stafford, Jurys Inn general manager, said: “It is satisfying to see the determination of the Almis Women’s Organization to get aid to the less fortunate in Somaliland is paying off; we at Jurys Inn Heathrow are happy that we can support this worthy cause in any way that we can.
“Supporting the plight of those who are less fortunate both in the UK and abroad is important to the employees at Jurys Inns.”
