Five-star Seaham Hall, Durham, is proudly supporting The Solan Connor Fawcett Family Cancer Trust

Seaham Hall – the boutique five-star hotel steeped in history and charm – is proud to announce a new charity partnership with The Solan Connor Fawcett Family Cancer Trust, a Durham-based charity created to help people affected by cancer, helping to improve their quality of life and providing help and advice for cancer patients and their families.

Seaham Hall Award
The charity, based in Spennymoor, County Durham, has a special place in the hearts of the Seaham Hall team and, with its support, the charity is increasing awareness throughout the wider area of County Durham, giving something back to the community.

Charity founder Mark Solan was recently named ITV Tyne Tees Fundraiser of the Year, and was shortlisted for a Pride of Britain award 2017 for ‘Regional local fundraiser of the year’, his charity having supported hundreds of people affected by cancer by helping them deal with essential things like household chores, funeral costs and specialist equipment.

Seaham Hall aims to raise awareness and funds for this worthwhile charity to help support the local community. It will be running a number of initiatives to do so, including providing raffle prizes, promoting the charity to its spa members, taking donations and collections as well as promoting its cancer touch therapy treatments – special spa treatments for people diagnosed with and recovering from cancer.

Nathan White, Seaham Hall’s General Manager says: “When looking for a new charity to support for the upcoming year, we at Seaham Hall wanted to find a partner with whom we could work to make an impact and, most importantly, to touch and improve lives in our local community. The Solan Connor Fawcett Family Cancer Trust partnership is very much in keeping with our caring business ethic, which includes, for example, our cancer touch therapy treatments, launched this year. Seaham Hall is looking forward to helping improve the lives of local families through our new partnership. For us it is about dedicated actions and not simply giving money.”

Seaham Hall is featured in Tripadvisor’s 2016 Travellers’ Choice Top 25 Small Hotels in the UK and Top 25 Luxury Hotels in the UK, and additional current accolades include Spa Manager of the Year in the Boutique Hotelier Awards, Editor’s Choice Spa in the Good Hotel Guide, Five Bubble Luxury accreditation by the Good Spa Guide, Gold in Small Hotel of the Year at the North East England Tourism Awards and North East Spa of the Year at the Professional Beauty Regional Awards 2017.
