DoubleTree hotel provides lunch for homeless


Last week, the DoubleTree by Hilton Hull hotel provided the city’s homeless with a special festive lunch at Emmaus Hull. 

The special event was arranged in conjunction with the Smile Foundation and with local charity Emmaus who support people through homelessness by providing meaningful work, training and a stable home for as long as needed. 

Over 40 people enjoyed a two-course Christmas lunch of roast turkey and all the trimmings, as well as Christmas pudding.

Lizzie Harwood, Director of Sales and Marketing at The DoubleTree by Hilton Hull, said: “Christmas is such a lovely time of the year but for some people this isn’t always the case so we decided to provide Emmaus with a two-course Christmas lunch. It’s a great feeling to give something back to the community and the very least we could do.”

Kelly Finnis, Director at Emmaus Hull, added: “We are so very grateful to the DoubleTree team for supporting our charity and those affected by homelessness. Christmas can be an extremely sad time for those not connected to family, and it’s the kindness of others which can never be underestimated at this time year.

"The DoubleTree team in Hull have dedicated so much to our charity through the care committee and support from their senior leaders.Thank you also to the amazing Tessa at Smile Foundation who joined us all up."

The DoubleTree by Hilton Hull boasts 165 modern bedrooms as well as a Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill and The Lexington Rooftop Bar & Terrace providing panoramic skyline views of the city.

For business events the hotel has several meeting rooms as well as a large, flexible, pillar free ballroom which can accommodate 1,000 delegates theatre style or can be divided into four different rooms for smaller events.

It is the largest, dedicated hotel events space in the city covering 1,500 square metres, making it ideal for large, high profile events.
