Tamburlaine, Cambridge's newest 4 star hotel, located in the heart of the vibrant Station Road area, has chosen Addenbrooke's Charitable Trust as its charity of the year for 2017/18.
Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust (ACT) is dedicated to changing patients’ lives across Cambridgeshire and beyond. The charity’s mission is to provide funds and support to Addenbrooke’s and the Rosie hospitals, in whichever capacity they might need. Through innovative developments, such as the TASTE programme which helps children who have been tube-fed to enjoy food again, and providing funding for quiet rooms and outside spaces for patients to utilise as a part of their healing process, ACT is thinking outside the box to provide extra elements of care over and above what the NHS can provide alone. ACT’s work also transcends borders with Addenbrooke’s Abroad, which through volunteers, supports healthcare across 35 countries, so informing the hospital’s work here in Cambridge. The trust also supports a range of research, including the current Personalised Breast Cancer Program which aims to improve treatment based on a woman’s genetic profile.
ACT was selected by the team at the Tamburlaine as their charity of the year, as the hotel launches onto the scene in Cambridge. The hotel will be supporting ACT in a number of ways, including through staff charity events such as runs, bike racing and boat races, as well as events carried out by individual members of hotel staff.
Tamburlaine General Manager Zac Pearse says, ‘We are thrilled to be working together with ACT as our charity of the year. This fantastic charity is making pioneering efforts to ensure that our local hospitals can provide the best possible care for every patient. It is a great way for Tamburlaine to be involved with the local community, and we hope to be an important part of supporting their efforts to raise funds and awareness for this inspiring cause.’
Liz Brinsdon, Acting Head of Development for ACT says, ‘The Tamburlaine is a brilliant addition to Cambridge. We’re delighted that the hotel team are showing commitment to the local community by supporting Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust to provide the best possible care for patients’.
