Dalata Announces Three New Charity Partners

Dalata Hotel Group has announced that it will be supporting the Marie Keating Foundation, Leukaemia Care and Air Ambulance Northern Ireland as the company's three charity partners over the next three years.


The partnerships are part of the group's Dalata Digs Deep initiative, which sees fundraising activities taking place at all 47 of the company's hotels across Ireland, the UK and continental Europe.

Statement By Dalata Chief Operating Officer

Dalata Hotel Group’s Chief Operating Officer, Des McCann, said that the company is proud to be continuing its charity work to support the Marie Keating Foundation, Leukaemia Care and Air Ambulance Northern Ireland over the coming years, and, "Great consideration has gone into selecting our new charity partners for the next three years. Our approach is to engage with our teams to understand the issues they care about which then allows Dalata and the charity to build a more meaningful partnership over a three year period. Our teams get to know the organisations for which they are raising the funds really well and it means we can target our energy and resources to where they produce maximum benefit for the charities and their clients.

"All of our charities are focussed on helping to save lives. We know the pandemic has put health care providers under extreme strain, both in Ireland and the UK, therefore it was important to us to select charities which do so much great work in helping to support our health services."

Statement By Dalata Group HR Manager

Dalata group HR manager Claire Oliver McGarry said that Dalata Digs Deep has grown into a major fundraising driver which has the power to make a significant difference to the charities it supports, and "When we started out, we could never have imagined how engaged our people would become with this initiative and how it would enrich the lives of so many within Dalata, working together for worthy causes.


"Our people really go above and beyond when it comes to supporting fundraising activities, without them Dalata Digs Deep could not have raised the huge sums of money it has to date.

"I want to pay tribute to all of the Dalata staff, and I am excited to see what our next chapter of supporting these three great charities brings."
