The Royal Garden Hotel donates £10,000 to local charity, SMART

Thank you to the Royal Garden Hotel and staff for raising £10,000 for local charity SMART.

SMART, or Saint Mary Abbots Rehabilitation and Training, is a local charity based in the south of Kensington & Chelsea. It supports people of all ages affected by mental illness on their path to recovery. They have a particular emphasis on creative skill sessions, as they recognise the importance of meaningful activity and training as a way to rebuild lives, giving people purpose and confidence.

A team from the Royal Garden Hotel went to SMART yesterday to present the £10,000 and to host a delicious Afternoon Tea.

Jonathan Lowrey, General Manager, Royal Garden Hotel said “We value and enjoy our association with the local community.  Supporting SMART has enabled our 400 staff members to demonstrate just that.”

Jose Veiga, Services Manager, SMART said “The support from the Royal Garden Hotel and the K&C Foundation has been invaluable.  Not just financial but their practical support has made a real difference to the people we work with.”
