Tees Business Digital Media Pack

Luxury four-star Teesside hotel Wynyard Hall has partnered with a local foundation in a bid to raise £10,000 for charities in the local area to support them through the coronavirus pandemic.

During the Covid-19 crisis, Wynyard Hall is joining forces to raise funds for Teesside Philanthropic Foundation to share with the most needy in the region.

Wynyard Hall officials have requested that all donations be split equally to support local food banks, domestic abuse charities and vulnerable families throughout Teesside.

Wynyard Hall directors Allison and Sarah Antonopoulos and local businessman Sir John Hall have kick-started the fundraising with an “incredibly generous” donation of £5,000.

Speaking of their donation, Sarah said, “We understand that this is a difficult time for charities, and we are glad we are able to help support these incredibly important causes during this global pandemic.”

Lee Bramley, the Foundation’s chair of trustees said: “This is an incredibly generous donation by Wynyard Hall at a challenging time for all businesses but especially venues such as theirs. To make such a donation in aid of vulnerable Teessiders at such a time says much about them, and we’ll be delighted to ensure their donation goes towards the local causes closest to their hearts. Let’s hope, with their support, the amount can be doubled to £10,000.”
