Buzzworks Holdings, one of Scotland’s leading hospitality groups, has launched a pioneering new initiative to provide a boost to local charities in its area.
They have rolled out a quarterly pro-social bonus scheme which will see its top four performing venues taking a share of £1000 to gift to a registered charity of their choice.
The first round of winners for 2017 were announced this week, as The Mill House in Stewarton, Elliots in Prestwick, Lido Troon and The Corner House in Kilwinning beat off stiff competition to take the cash prizes for their chosen charities.
Winning venue The Mill Housechose to gift its gift of £500 to The Royal Hospital for Sick Children. Second placed Elliots presented Ayrshire Hospice with £250 and Lido gave £150 to the British Heart Foundation. The final beneficiary of this quarter was Eglinton MS Society which The Corner House in Kilwinning awarded its £100 bonus to.
Each venue is scored at the end of every month based on various factors including sales, customer service and cleanliness.
Kenny Blair, Buzzworks Holdings MD, said, “We are really excited to launch this scheme at Buzzworks, which we believe could be the first of its kind within the hospitality industry.
“The pro-social bonus is a way of us giving back and rewarding the hard work and dedication of our employees. By offering the choice of charity to the individual winning venues this ensures our people and the communities we work in come first.
“All of the staff pulled together to try and win for their selected charities and judging was difficult; however there were four clear winners within the first quarter and congratulations is in order for each of the successful venues.” http://www.buzzworksholdings.co.uk
