“We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give.” Sir Winston Churchill
Giving Back – At Washingborough Hall Hotel we’re privileged to be able to live, work and play in one of the most beautiful and prosperous regions of Lincolnshire. On our doorstep we can choose to partake in any number of lifestyle choices, we thrive in our locale and our kids are healthy and strong. There’s not much we need to do to improve on what nature has bountifully provided; the character and spirit of our community is a reflection of that.
Along the journey of getting the business where it is today, our hotel and our team have been rewarded for providing service to exceptional business owners and individuals. And, as our own business has grown and prospered, we often ask, “What else could we be doing as a business to give a greater purpose in doing what we do, whilst still remaining a vital part of our community?”
Businesses have the power to change lives
What’s happening in our world?
• Nearly three billion people live on less than two dollars a day
• Nearly a billion people entered the 21st century unable to read a book or sign their names
• One billion people lack access to basic health care
• 30,000 children die each day due to poverty. That is about 11 million children each year, or 20 children every minute
• 16,316,925 hectares of rainforests are destroyed each year
In the world where we see so many issues in a vast variety of forms, charity organisations, government bodies and NGOs alone cannot make our world a better place for all. We believe real sustainability comes from the sense of giving and caring in our individual lifestyle, in our community and in our world. In order to embed giving in Washingborough Hall Hotel’s everyday life, we work with the following organisations by giving them financial and pro bono support to change lives:
