Jurys Inn Plymouth puts their Money where their Feet are!

Jurys Inn Plymouth puts their Money where their Feet are!

29 May 2011. Today the General Manager of Jurys Inn Plymouth, Graham Hole led the local hotel group’s six strong team to a 13.2 mile victory in the Plymouth Half Marathon, in aid of Children’s Hospice Southwest’s Precious Lives Appeal to build a new Children’s Hospice for the families from Plymouth and Cornwall.

The Jurys Inn Plymouth team consisting of General Manager Graham Hole, Sales Manager Richard Cambridge, Deputy General Manager Jinu Jacob, Revenue Manager Judy Gardner and two of the hotel’s chefs; Chris Marshall and Darryl Harris committed to the bank holiday weekend race to help reach the hotel’s £1,000 fundraising target for the hospice.

Jurys Inn Plymouth started fundraising in December 2010 with a sponsored facial hair growing competition by some of the hairier male employees over the Christmas period. There are also plans to follow the Half Marathon up with a sponsored skydive in September.

The team has managed to raise over £6500 so far but you can still donate to a great cause by visiting www.justgiving.com/jurys-inn and pledging money however small or large the amount – every penny counts!

Plymouth representative for Children’s Hospice Southwest, Judy Pride, said of the fundraising efforts; “Without teams of fundraisers like those from Jurys Inn Plymouth we wouldn’t be able to offer the support and expert care we provide for sick children and their families. To keep our hospices supportive and joyful places filled with love and laughter we need people to keep giving so please log on to www.justgiving.com/jurys-inn to show your support.”

Jurys Inn Plymouth is keen to take an active role in the local community and is proud to announce its new sponsorship of the inaugural 10km Plymouth road race set for October 2011.

Graham said of the team’s fundraising efforts: “Jurys Inn is always keen to be part of the local community so we’re pleased we could both sponsor and take part in the run. Training for the Half Marathon has been tough! Ahead of the challenge we called upon our friends, the 29 Commando Regiment based at The Royal Citadel to devise training plans we could all do together. Our training certainly made us stronger as a team but the reality of running a half marathon only really hits you when you’re actually doing it.”

The 247 bedroom Jurys Inn Plymouth is situated on Exeter Street, conveniently beside the historic quarter. The hotel’s spacious and comfortable rooms are all en-suite and can accommodate three adults, two adults and two children, or just one person in complete comfort. Business guests at Jurys Inn Plymouth can enjoy 11 dedicated meeting rooms, top-of-the-range communication systems, free charger hire for mobiles, Wi-fi available in the lobby and public areas as well as friendly, efficient staff available 24 hours a day.
