Since December 1, Clarion Hotel Amaranten’s Christmas gift collection “Alone Christmas Tree Seeking Gifts” has been going on in the hotel lobby for the benefit of the Children’s Cancer Foundation. Last Friday the hotel packed together the gifts which during the Christmas holidays will be distributed to children with cancer and their siblings at hospice and hospital in Uppsala and Stockholm. The collection has generated incredible 601 gifts!

Every year, all hotels in Nordic Choice Hotels organize a Christmas gift collection for any organization, the initiative is called “Alone Christmas Tree Seeking Gifts” and last year the collection resulted in 63,880 gifts under nearly 190 Christmas trees. This year, the Group hopes to beat the record.

– We are so grateful to all guests and partners who have been involved in this year’s collection. Commitment has been greater than ever and far far more than we could ever have dreamed of, thank you! says Ulf Cato, CEO, Clarion Hotel Amaranten

The Christmas presents will be distributed to children with cancer at Christmas and their siblings in hospitals and hospice in Stockholm and Uppsala through the Children’s Cancer Foundation Stockholm-Gotland and the Children’s Cancer Foundation Middle Sweden.

– The work to support families affected by childhood cancer is important and all help is appreciated. Our heartfelt thanks to Clarion Hotel Amaranten with all the fantastic guests and partners – your thoughtfulness now contributes to the joy when life is as difficult as possible, says Jessica Runemark, group manager for the Association of Childhood Cancer Foundation.
