Dorsett Kuala Lumpur’s Deepavali CSR at Cheshire Home of Selangor

Corporate Social Responsibility is a constituent of Dorsett’s operating philosophy. Dorsett Kuala Lumpur’s associates along with Adele Ang, General Manager of the hotel gathered at the Cheshire Home of Selangor on Deepavali day also known as Diwali internationally for the Hindu’s festival of lights. It was a warm and harmonious event on the afternoon of 6th November 2018 with residents of all races and religious at the Cheshire Home of Selangor who are permanently disabled without any means of income and resources.

Dorsett Kuala Lumpur has been serving popcorn daily from 6pm – 7pm at the hotel lobby, named as the “Popcare Hour” along with a donation box for guests and associates to contribute as they like while savouring popcorns freshly made from a popcorn machine. The hotel has managed to collect an amount of RM2,209.95 for the past 3 months which was the fund donated to the Cheshire Home of Selangor during the Deepavali CSR event. Datin Paduka Khatijah, the President of Cheshire Home of Selangor on behalf of the disabled residents was very grateful to receive the mock up cheque presented by Adele Ang, General Manager of Dorsett Kuala Lumpur, along with 30 pillows that the hotel contributed as well.

This activity represents one of the global brand initiatives of Dorsett Hotels carried out to engage with the needy communities, and to share the hotel’s brand tagline, to ‘Stay Vibrant’ with Dorsett. The F&B team of Dorsett Kuala Lumpur prepared an array of local delicacies served buffet style at the Cheshire Home on Tuesday. While the residents were happily being served with a scrumptious feast, two associates Ezri, Senior Sales Manager and Melissa, Marketing & Communications Manager of the hotel entertained them with a session of evergreen tunes, the residents, most of them on their wheelchairs happily clapped along.

Do pop by the hotel lobby at any day during the Popcare Hour and contribute as you like. Proceeds gathered go to charity homes identified for various CSR activities and events. Follow us on FB @dorsettkualalumpur and on IG #DorsettKL
