The Ability Group is very proud to be supporting the Hilton in the
Community Foundation through its fun-filled, sparkling, annual Charity
Ball at the Hilton Park Lane. Ability is honoured to be able to contribute
to the good work of the foundation dedicated towards supporting young
people alongside such other distinguished corporate partners in this
eighth year of success.
Hilton in the Community Foundation wants to help as many young people as possible. Under the banner Supporting Young People Worldwide the Foundation is dedicated to making a real difference to those most in need, wherever Hilton operates. Through targeted grant-giving, they aim to support smaller charities that might otherwise be overlooked.
In 2006, the Foundation donated over £1.3m to numerous good causes,including Action for Kids, Crisis UK, DebRA, Kids Cookery School, Show Racism the Red Card, Snowdon Award Scheme. The Hilton hotels and offices nominated local charities to receive 152 grants from money raised by colleagues, benefiting causes such as ChildLine, Watford New Hope Trust, Teenage Cancer Trust, Help a Local Child, Fairy Box and many more.
A large proportion of the Foundation’s income is generated through fundraising initiatives run by Hilton hotels and Living Well clubs, primarily in the UK and Ireland and Ability is proud to be supporting these.
