Classic British Hotels

Classic British Hotels are delighted to be able to support a fantastic charity, ‘Something To Look Forward To’, which was set up by a couple from Cambridge, in 2015, following a terminal breast cancer diagnosis of it’s Co-founder.

The charity supports people affected by cancer and cancer poverty by providing gifts and experiences donated by individuals and companies.

We are looking for venues who would be willing to donate experiences such as overnight stays, meals out or Afternoon Tea.

I was gifted an overnight stay with Sunday lunch via the charity STLFT.

This literally couldn’t have come at a better time for Gill and I! It was like pushing a reset button, ,the hospitality of the hotel was fabulous, the food was amazing, cosy duvets! We both slept like babies! We had a lovely day out in London and felt like the world had been lifted from our shoulders.

I can’t thank the guys enough for this gift, it’s not easy having a diagnosis and juggling life with children and it’s restored our faith in people who just want to be nice and support others living through hard times.

Thank you so much.

How will it all work?

Experiences gifted in hotels are one of our most sought after gifts and we are extremely grateful for these donations.

These gifts are not allocated on a first come first served basis and are not used in fundraising or for raffle prizes, they go directly to people affected by cancer.

You can donate as many or as few nights as you wish. If you only have availability for one night during the off-peak season that’s great.

Overnight stays are very popular with breakfast and/or dinner the option for either of these is entirely yours! These experiences give a manageable break, when it’s needed most.

Overnight stays for families are also highly sought after. Where it is important for the whole family to enjoy an experience, what better gift to give than precious memories when they’re needed most.

Dining experience for 2 or a family is very welcome and makes a huge difference just to have a few hours to break from the relentlessness of the cancer journey.

Afternoon Tea – always popular and always appreciated a little luxury in a wonderful setting really does wonders!
