Clarion Hotel Stockholm invites newly arrived children to autumn holidays mischief

By on October 25, 2018

On October 28 it,s offers fika, music and sports activities for newly arrived children at Södermalm.

It started with a conference customer who left 120 children’s drummers after a team event. These drums have now become the center of an entire morning focusing on joy, music, togetherness and autumn holidays mischief for newly arrived children at Södermalm

– The company Synpulse had a conference with us and asked if we would have any use for their 120 drums used for a team activity. When we previously supported Vintertullens passage accommodation for new arrivals, we decided to build a whole morning around these drums and the power of music to bring people together, says Björn Callin, General Manager at Clarion Hotel Stockholm.

Children’s Day will take place on October 28th, and the idea is that all newly arrived children living on the passage accommodation on Katarina Bangata and Ringvägen in Södermalm will have the opportunity to have some extra fun on the autumn holidays. The hotel sets the tables with fika, playgrounds, music and activity games in the hotel’s big banqueting hall and Hammarby Bandy sets up with bandy goals, clubs and players on site to teach the children to play bandy. Musicians will be in place to give the kids a music time where the 120 drums will be used. These drums can the children take home with them.

– When our friends at Graffiti STHLM heard about this project, they immediately offered to paint them in colorful patterns to appeal to the children a little bit more. We are incredibly fortunate, having such generous partners as Hammarby Bandy and GraffitiSTHLM and being able to bring something back to the people at our beloved Södermalm feels fantastic, Björn continues.

Södermalm currently has two passage accommodations for new arrivals, one at Vintertullen and one at Tantolunden. On these, about 120 children between the ages of 0 and 17 live with their families in anticipation of their own accommodation in Sweden.
