Be Generous AND Win a Holiday
My hips have had a very difficult week. My stomach and taste buds on the other hand have had the best time ever. At work this week everyone has been baking cakes as if cake prohibition is about to kick in shortly. Ordinarily when a cake arrives in the office I’m pretty well behaved, but this week the cake supply has been constant. With almost everyone in the office churning delicious things out day after day there’s been an unavoidable excess lying around at all times. Difficult. Even more difficult because these cakes are the most dangerous of all the baked temptations on the planet – charity cakes. ‘Eat me and help the world,’ say the cakes. ‘Ok in that case I will eat you,’ says me. And yet I feel super duper. The bake sale raised a lot of money, we’ve had lots of delicious things free of the usual guilt – win win! Working with charities in a fun fashion is undeniably marvellous. Being generous with time and money is marvellous. And while we are on the topic of marvellous things… giving away a free holiday is very very marvellous indeed. Feel like winning one? Good, in that case you have come to the right place. To celebrate its Be Generous month, Small Luxury Hotels of the World is giving away four 2-night stays at any of its hotels. Very kind indeed, but then generosity is not out of character for this lot. You’ll never hear them make a fuss about it but generosity has been at the heart of the brand since inception with more than £3 million raised and shared between 150 charities since 2013. Impressive numbers – I’m hoping for the sake of the staff that that wasn’t all cake related fundraising. If you want to win one of the stays and you’re a member simply click here and get started. If you’re not a member don’t worry, signing up is easy peasy here.
