Princess staff serve a feast for charity
The leadership team at Hamilton Princess & Beach Club served up a holiday dinner at the Salvation Army.
About 100 recipients at Booth’s Bistro, the Salvation Army’s headquarters at North Street, Hamilton, enjoyed dinner from the hotel’s kitchens.
The menu included pumpkin soup, turkey, stuffing, cassava bread and dessert pies.
Volunteers, led by general manager Tim Morrison, included members of the executive team and were aided by the kitchen staff. The local mission of Booth’s Bistro — Community Meal is to provide a hot meal to those in need in a warm and welcoming environment.
Dinner is served to between 75 and 100 people a day by volunteers, five days a week. Mr Morrison said: “We are pleased to have been able to help the Salvation Army in their mission to provide a good, hearty holiday meal to those who need it.
“We are amazed by the unwavering generosity of the staff at Booth’s Bistro and are gratified to have been able to play a part.”
Dena Hepditch, corps officer and community and family services officer, said: “We are so grateful to the team from Hamilton Princess & Beach Club for getting involved and donating not only a delicious dinner for our recipients but also their time. It is with the support of the community that we can help those in need.”
