Smarter Giving Update
20 March 2023
The team at Hyatt Regency London – The Churchill has continued its partnership with local charity The Marylebone Project, recently attending a careers-pampering day at the Project’s centre, during which they introduced themselves as an employer to the charity’s service users. Former service user and now employee at The Churchill, Lola, shared her story and experience leading to many others expressing an interest in work opportunities.
This is part of the hotel’s wider collaboration with the centre, which has included cooking and serving service users breakfast, delivering 100 meals during Christmas time to the women, hosting a thank you event for the charity’s volunteers, as well as donating several bags of winter clothes and hundreds of china plates to The Marylebone Project centre.
The Marylebone Project provides a life-changing service for homeless women and is the largest and longest-running centre of its kind in London and the UK. The charity’s vision is to empower women to end their homelessness and live their lives to the full.
The partnership between Hyatt Regency London – The Churchill and The Marylebone Project was facilitated by our Smarter Giving programme that matches businesses looking to connect with the community with local charities, schools and community groups that require support through volunteering, donations and skills sharing.

The results of their work will be exhibited at the Museum of Home on the 23 March, from 10.00 until 16.30. RSVP here if you would like to attend.
