BAHA's Dedicated Charity 2012

Many are still not aware of the unique hotel that we have on our doorstep.

Macmillan Caring Locally opened a very special hotel in June this year and since it has opened it has been a valuable place of sanctuary for many returning patients who have cancer or life-threatening illnesses.

The Grove Hotel on the East Cliff is the home of the Local Macmillan charity – not the high profile charity that we are all aware of but a local hotel, run on a not for profit basis, that we can all be proud is in Bournemouth.

Bournemouth Area Hospitality Association (BAHA) Chairman, Andy Woodland, attended the launch of the hotel and was so impressed that he proposed that the Association choose Macmillan Caring Locally as their dedicated charity for 2011.

With the proceeds from the BAHA Annual golf Charity day members of the BAHA Committee, including Andy Woodland Chairman and Vice Chairman Alison Gandolfi from the Balincourt Hotel, supported by Cllr Rod Cooper, were able to present an early Christmas present of a wooden swing chair to Grove Hotel Manager Brenden Howard.  “We are very pleased and appreciative of the kind support that we have received from the BAHA committee, the swinging chair has already had great reviews from our guests and this also makes a great feature for our garden”. Brenden Howard.

Andy Woodland stated that he and the BAHA Committee “very proud to be able to support what is thought to be the only hotel of it’s kind in the country and will go on to encourage more fund raising for a gazebo at the hotel within the BAHA Association.” “BAHA is the voice of the accommodation providers acrossBournemouthand we are very pleased to name The Grove Hotel as one of our members”
