Original Sokos Hotel Vaakuna Kouvola is being completely renovated throughout 2020. On 5 June 2020, we opened the reception area and the Frans & Rose bistro, both of which had been given a full makeover, and the first 60 renovated hotel rooms. Each room features one of three different themes: Pentik, Repovesi and Tykkimäki.
In the makeover we have replaced all the bedlinen, the beds themselves and the room furniture. The old materials have been donated to charity. Our chosen charities were:
Valkealan Opisto college
Hope – Yhdessä & Yhteisesti ry
Hope is a charity that pursues the common good through voluntary work. It realises the vision of Finland as a country where all children can have equal opportunities for a good life. The charity provides clothing and other goods to low-income families and families that have experienced crises, and also supports hobbies and leisure activities for children and adolescents.
Our support team – Kouvolan Tukikohta children's shelter, Kouvola
Kouvulan Tukikohta provides shelter for children from the age of eight and adolescents up to the age of 18 and supports their families. The shelter also provides support for foster care and community care services. There are seven places in the shelter.
The shelter specialises in providing attachment-focused daily living and trauma care. The entrepreneurs' expertise in therapy and the training level of the staff ensure rehabilitative day-to-day life. An active, solution-centred and attachment-focused approach are the foundations of our daily work.
