R Charity named charity of year by hotel

Jun 01,2016

Last month, our award-winning Hard Days Night hotel in Liverpool named R Charity as its charity of the year, and we couldn't be more thrilled. R Charity is run by theRoyal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospital's NHS Trust, and is currently fundraising for the redevelopment of Merseyside's largest hospital. They're doing fantastic work already and are aiming to raise £10 million towards the project.

In choosing R Charity as its charity of the year, Hard Days Night Hotel offers its support and aid to this worthwhile initiative, which is helping the site to become England's largest single-patient room hospital.

General Manager of Hard Days Night Hotel, Mike Dewey says:

When our team met with the redevelopment staff at the Royal Liverpool University Hospital, we were instantly impressed by the plans for the upcoming overhaul of the site and its landmark £335 million redevelopment. The team at the hotel are thrilled to assist the work of R Charity ahead of the new hospital's opening; their collective efforts will help aid R Charity to provide comfort and the very best care to patients in the hospital.

With plans to install Freeview TVs in every room, as well as reclining chairs that allow relatives to stay comfortably overnight, this is vital work that will provide a high-tech and homely healthcare space for those who need it. The new hospital is going to sit alongside the existing site, and will accommodate 646 bed patients at a time, with eighteen operating theatres, a forty-bed Critical Care Unit, and one of the North West's largest emergency departments.

It's support like that provided by R Charity that means these kinds of projects can happen, and hospitals can go above and beyond even NHS standards of care. That's why we're immensely proud to be involved, and can't wait to see the world-class new Royal Liverpool up get up and running in 2017.

Clive Harrington, Senior Vice President of Operations Europe at Millennium Hotels and Resorts says:

We're thrilled with the Hard Days Night Hotel's decision to support R Charity because the work its doing is invaluable. It's fantastic that patients will be able to have their own rooms and be with their families in homely surroundings, while receiving the best possible care. We're excited to see the hospital when it's finished next year.
