Clients at Arcare Sanctuary Manors were invited to the InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort for a special high tea event.
For the whole of September, different hotels that are part of the InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) organise activities with a focus on giving.
They take part in activities that are all about doing something good for someone else.
It could be volunteering at a local organisation or taking care of the environment.
Their ‘Giving for Good’ month is part of their True Hospitality for Good program, which runs every year.
This year, their team was kind enough to put on an elaborate and lovely high tea for some of our Arcare clients.
During the high tea, our clients were able to sit back and relax with a good view and atmosphere.
And they enjoyed the tiers of gourmet sandwiches, warm savoury foods, scones, sweets, and delicious tea and coffee.
The hotel team sat down to chat with us and the chef even came out to give a very warm welcome and say hello to all the ladies. Everyone had such a wonderful time.
Maria stated that it was the best coffee she has had in ages! Embracing her Italian roots, she thoroughly enjoyed sipping on her warm and rich expresso.
“Now this is real coffee! With all this lovely food around me, it really is a great morning. I will definitely come back here with my son,” she said.
This is a great example of a local community partnership and we are glad to have been part of InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort’s initiative to reach out to local communities and make a difference in individual lives.
An act of kindness sure goes a long way as the clients will remember this special high tea for years to come!
