At Shire Hotels we’re committed to investing in the local communities around our hotels. Each Shire Hotel is dedicated to helping to strengthen the community they are an integral part of and works hard to make a positive contribution to the local community.
You will often see our teams out and about in the local area, getting involved in charity work, community engagement initiatives and giving back to the community.
Each hotel chooses a local good cause to work with on an ongoing basis. This means we can make a real and measurable difference to a charity and creates a focus for our charitable support.
