Charity Partners

Macdonald Hotels & Resorts through its unique guest-driven Make a Difference campaign has donated over £2 million to various charities over the last 15 years. In addition to this Macdonald Hotels also provides meeting space, accommodation and fundraising events. 

Macdonald Hotels & Resorts are proud to support the following nominated charities:

The Place2Be is a school-based counselling service, dedicated to improving the emotional wellbeing of children, their families and the whole school community. Children today have all sorts of worries - from friendships to bereavement, domestic violence, gang culture or crime. By supporting children early, Place2Be gives them the chance to grow up with prospects rather than problems. 

Chernobyl Children's Life Line
Chernobyl Children's Life Line was established in 1991 to offer social, health and educational support to children contaminated by the Chernobyl disaster in 1986. As a result of the fall-out thousands are born every year and go on to develop different forms of cancer. The charity brings children over to the UK for four week recuperative breaks.

Blythswood Care
Established in 1966, Blythswood Care offers practical help for those in need. Whether through filled shoeboxes at Christmas, relief and development aid or social projects for the young and old, Blythswood brings hope to thousands in Europe, Africa and Asia. They are committed to long-term sustainable projects working alongside local knowledgeable charities at the heart of these communities that require support. 


Macdonald Hotels & Resorts is collaborating with homelessness charity Centrepoint to encourage its guests to donate and support this worthwhile cause to find beds for young homeless people over the festive season. This year, 90,000 young adults across the UK will wake up homeless on Christmas morning and Centrepoint helps them find their feet with a safe place to live.  Macdonald Hotels & Resorts will be raising up to £20,000 for the charity by launching Christmas party raffle evenings and fund raising events, where guests will get the chance to win a dinner for two or a gift voucher to spend on any golf, spa or dining experience.
