Our Charity Partners for 2021

At the Doyle Collection, each of our luxury hotels partners with a local charity of cause to support each year. This support isn’t just about donations, but we also work with them to support local events, provide volunteers and wider sponsorship.

We are proud to work with the following charities across our group this year.

The Bristol
The Bristol is working with Hospitality Action

Hospitality Action was established in 1837 and has since offered vital assistance to all who work, or have worked within hospitality in the UK., including chefs, waiters, housekeepers and managers, concierges, receptionists and kitchen porters.

They support hospitality staff with challenges such as physical and mental illness, financial difficulties, addiction and many more.

The River Lee
This year The River Lee in Cork is supporting the  Marymount Hospice & The Mercy Hospital. Both provide incredible services for people and their families suffering from terminal illnesses.

It is also supporting Renaissance Foundation, who work with underprivileged children. The hotel diverts surplus food to the charity, organises events for local kids and offers mentoring and support for entering the workplace.

The Marylebone
The Marylebone is supporting three charities this year. 
Hospitality Action offers vital assistance to all who work, or have worked within hospitality in the UK. From physical illness or mental health issues to financial difficulty, family problems to addiction - Hospitality Action is here to get hospitality workers get back on their feet again.

The Croke Park
This year Croke Park in Ireland is supporting two charities. The Mater Foundation & Temple Street Children’s Hospital. The former supports the largest adult hospital in Ireland, while the latter is an acute pediatric hospital in Dublin that treats 150,000 children per year.

The Dupont Circle
The Dupont Circle in Washington DC has introduced a wonderful new programme, the Memorial Tree. When a team member suffers the loss of a family member, the hotel plants a tree in the name of the loved one via Trees For A Change.

The Dupont Circle also takes part in benefits that provide meals to local unemployed restaurant workers and makes sure surplus food is donated to DC Central Kitchen, a non profit focused on combating poverty and hunger through job training and job creation.

The Westbury
At The Westbury in Dublin, they are supporting the Crumlin Children’s Hospital this year.

Children's Health Ireland at Crumlin is an acute paediatric teaching hospital and Ireland's largest paediatric hospital. It is the national centre in Ireland for a range of specialities including children’s childhood cancers and blood disorders, cardiac diseases, major burns, cystic fibrosis, and rheumatology.

The Bloomsbury
The Bloomsbury in London is partnering with Demelza this year, which is a hospice care for children. Demelza helps every child and young person who has a serious or terminal condition to make sure they receive the care and attention they need to live the most fulfilling life they can, and that they and their families have the opportunity to build memories, for however long they have together.
