Stevenage hotel workers can sleep easy after charity effort
STAFF at a hotel have slept on the job to raise funds for their chosen charity.
Employees at the Premier Inn in Six Hills Way, Stevenage, took part in a 24-hour sleep in at the hotel’s reception in aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital.
Their efforts raised �500 for the children’s hospital in London thanks to donations from fellow staff members and customers.
Receptionist Carmel Austin said: “It was great fun, seeing all those people walking in and being greeted by a massive bed at reception.
“I only had a few hours sleep, but it was worth it. We put in two extra hours as we were so close to our �500 target and we made it in the end.
