The Royal Horseguards hotel in London’s Whitehall is marking its official relaunch with a pledge to support British soldiers wounded in Afghanistan and Iraq.
The hotel’s owner, Guoman Hotels, is donating a five-figure sum to Help for Heroes and The Household Cavalry Charitable Fund as part of a year-long commitment to the cause which began with an exclusive fund-raising gala at The Royal Horseguards last night.
Guoman Hotels chief executive Sanjay Nijhawan said: “It seemed appropriate to celebrate [the hotel’s] official opening by recognising its location and heritage by making a commitment to two hugely relevant charitable organisations, Help for Heroes and The Household Cavalry Charitable Fund, and raise funds for the care of Britain’s wounded servicemen and women, to whom we owe so much.”
The two charities will also receive support from the other London Guoman hotels, The Tower, The Cumberland and The Charing Cross.
Guoman has invested £16 million in the renovation of the landmark Royal Horseguards hotel. All 280 bedrooms have been modernised and the meetings and conferences centre One Whitehall Place has been incorporated into the hotel.
