Today, 27th of July 2011 marks one year to go before the Olympic Games. To commemorate this IHG decided to donate $150,000 to support The Shelter in the Storm Fund; with an activity called Race Around the World. Members of Holiday Inns & IHG Partners today completed a task or a challenge of their choice for which IHG will donate $1 for every kilometer achieved.
Staff at our onsite Holiday Inn Hotel were joined by colleagues from the racecourse this evening to complete 5 laps of the track. Hotel and Operations Manager Claudette Ebanks was the driving force behind the Wolverhampton team, she said "this is a great project where every step counts and it was fantastic that so many of the staff gave up their time to take part in the challenge."
CARE operates in 87 countries, working on 905 community based projects, for the benefit of 82 million people — providing emergency aid during times of disaster and helping get communities back on their feet.
