Thinking Local

Each hotel is committed to their community and dedicated to social responsibility. Supporting local charity, conservation, preservation, nature, heritage and green initiatives including the personal development of each member of the Red Carnation team, is at the heart of everything we do.

We are a proud partner of the The Starlight Foundation who work tirelessly to grant the wishes of seriously and terminally ill children; and Great Ormond Street, one of the world's leading hospitals for children. An optional £1 is added to our guests' bills and we match each donation pound for pound. Additionally, profits from Founder & Owner Bea Tollman's cookbook A Life in Food are donated to these two charities.

We are thrilled to have raised £342,264 for The Starlight Foundation as of 20th February 2013 and £158,807 for Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital as of 31st December 2012.

Other charities we support include:

The Amy Biehl Foundation
Love Food, Give Food
The Red Cross
Hospitality Action
Pack for a purpose
Make-A-Wish Foundation

Our guests, staff, and suppliers have been wonderfully sympathetic to our aims and assisted us with their wholehearted support, and we would like to send a sincere 'thank you' to every one of them. We welcome ideas and input from our customers, staff and suppliers.
