Top hotel helps out with meals at Salvation Army
About 200 meals were served to people in need as part of the Hamilton Princess Hotel’s contribution to the spirit of Christmas.
The dishes were donated to the Salvation Army’s Booth’s Bistro, in the charity’s headquarter’s on North Street, Hamilton.
Tim Morrison, the hotel’s general manager led a team of volunteer staff to serve the meals to Salvation Army clients.
Mr Morrison said: “I’m so pleased the Hamilton Princess and Beach Club was able to lay out a festive feast for the community and support the Salvation Army in its mission to share a good meal with those who need it.
“We are incredibly impressed and touched by the hard work of the volunteers who help out in the community each and every day.
“We want to take this opportunity to encourage others to do the same throughout the holiday season whether it’s donating much needed food or your time, every little helps.“
Traditional roast turkey, stuffing, cassava pie, green beans and more were packaged up by hotel staff and served with drinks and fresh-baked gingerbread.
Salvation Army corps officers Dwayne and Kendacy Barnes, both Captains, added: “We want to give a huge thank you to the team at the Hamilton Princess and Beach Club for their wonderful tradition of marking the beginning of the Christmas season with an incredible meal.
“We know that our diners look forward to this meal all year round.“
