The Kingsbury launches novel ‘giving back’ initiative

22 November, 2020

The Kingsbury Hotel has launched a unique initiative to engage past pupils of schools around the country, who are resident in Colombo. “Support Your Alma Mater” encourages past pupils of these selected schools to indulge in The Kingsbury’s extensive gastronomic fare. Through this initiative, The Kingsbury will donate 10% of the total bill value to the individual past pupil’s alma mater each month. The offer is open to every gastronomical experience The Kingsbury is renowned for – indulgences that have etched chapters among gourmet connoisseurs.

Just a couple of clicks on the extensive delivery menu available on ‘The Kingsbury Indulgence’ platform, is all it takes to give back to your alma mater. Indulge in the expansive range of amazing epicurean options.

The offer will be valid until the end of February 2021 and will include the festive season - Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.

“Maintaining our business continuity in a milieu of uncertainty due to COVID-19 has brought about a myriad of challenges,” says the Managing Director of Hayleys Leisure Sector Rohan Karr.

“Sustaining income and ensuring employment of our team is a priority for us. But at the same time, we observed that due to COVID-19, a number of fund-raising events organised by past pupils for their schools were cancelled. It was these two factors that showed us the opportunity to close the gap by finding a two-fold solution; increasing revenue for us and enabling past pupils to raise funds for their school.”

Past pupils need to register their alma mater with the relevant details via ‘The Kingsbury Indulgence’ platform.
