The chosen charities of Original Sokos Hotel Seurahuone, Kotka

The major renovation of Original Sokos Hotel Seurahuone in Kotka was completed in July 2019. The renovation started in August 2018 with a complete refurbishment of the restaurants and in December 2018 the renovation of 100 hotel rooms began. During this project, the rooms in the original part of the hotel were completely refurbished based on three themes.

As part of the renovation, we have replaced all our bed linen, around 450 blankets and a similar number of pillows, and these we have donated to charity. Our chosen charities were:

the Finnish Red Cross
The Red Cross provides humanitarian aid in times of crisis and disaster as well as training people to prepare for such events.

Fida
Fida is a Finnish missionary and development organisation that operates in 48 countrites bringing hope and a future to the poorest of the poor. In particular, Fida works to improve the rights of vulnerable children.

Fida's work impacts on the lives of around two million people a year through its missionary and development work and humaintarian aid
