GUESTS staying at Hilton London Stansted will be using their small change to make a big difference to disadvantaged children over the coming months as part of Hilton in the Community Foundation’s annual fundraising campaign.

Small Change, Big Difference will be running in Stansted throughout October, November and December. The campaign invites guests staying at selected Hilton Worldwide hotels to add an optional �1 onto their room bill during their stay.

The campaign has now raised over �835,000 for children’s charities since its inception in 2004.

General manager Hilton London Stansted Andrew Brett said: “This is a very worthwhile campaign and one that I hope our generous guests will support once again. By choosing to add an optional �1 we can help Hilton in the Community Foundation to ensure that disadvantaged children receive the support that they need.

All proceeds raised from the campaign in Stansted will be used to support disadvantaged children through Hilton in the Community Foundation’s grants programme. Money raised in the UK and Ireland will be ring-fenced for charities working with disadvantaged children while the foundation will ensure that every net penny raised is distributed to these organisations.

These grants will then support a range of projects including the provision of specialist educational and sporting equipment, care facilities and training and activity based learning.

This year the foundation is also running the fundraiser in Continental Europe. In total 128 hotels in 17 countries will be involved in the programme helping to maximise the money raised.
