Kindhearted housekeepers’ big ‘push’ for charity

Jul 6, 2021 | News

A team of six kindhearted housekeepers at the Hotel Sheraton in Blackpool have been raising money for Molly Olly’s Wishes. The team dressed as famous maids, and pushed their housekeeping trolleys in pairs 5km along Blackpool Promenade on Thursday, June 24, starting and finished at the hotel, via the Tower, and Bispham.

Head housekeeper from the Hotel Sheraton, Jeannette Lovatt, was joined by Alison Beavers, Annie Hatcher, Ellie Spencer, Sandie Beavers and Cliona Beavers.

Liz Brown, owner of the Hotel Sheraton, said: “As a close friend of the Ollerenshaw family, Molly Olly’s Wishes is a charity I have been involved with since it was formed 10 years ago and the staff and guests at the hotel raised over £6,000 during 2018/19.”  Liz also paid tribute to her team which, she says, have worked hard to maintain the highest possible levels of cleanliness to keep guests safe throughout the pandemic.

The team are well on their way to reaching their £1,000 target.

Every donation, whatever size, helps a seriously unwell child


Current data suggests that 12 children and young people are diagnosed with cancer every day, and that 1,900 children under the age of 14 in the UK are diagnosed each year.

More children are diagnosed with a range of other, often rare, conditions and illnesses that are also life-threatening.
