Hilton hosts children’s charity fundraiser

MORE than £3,000 has been raised for The Scottish Centre for Children with Motor Impairments in Cumbernauld by staff and guests at Bellshill’s Hilton Strathclyde.

The money was raised by around 100 people who took part in a series of different sporting events as part of Hilton in the Community Foundation’s annual ‘Around the World in a Day’ fundraising programme.

The initiative sees hotel teams across Europe attempt to collectively cover enough virtual kilometres to circumnavigate the circumference of the earth, with each hotel choosing a local children’s charity to support.

In total, the Hilton Strathclyde team covered a distance of 2,908 kilometres.
