With over 30 years’ experience in the hotel industry, Adam has held senior management roles within Harbour Hotels, Macdonald Hotels and Forte Hotels. Following his retirement at Harbour, Adam – at the instigation of our founder, Nicolas Roach – set up Room to Reward.
Adam commands a strong history of philanthropy, currently holding posts including; trustee of Oakhaven Hospice in Lymington, Chairman of the Fairtrade Trading Committee for Christchurch and Chairman of the Oakhaven Care Agency.
Adam says…“I am passionate that Room to Reward becomes an industry-led initiative whereby hotels adopt the practice of donating unsold rooms as a means of supporting the charity sector and their inspirational Hidden Heroes. The support on our journey so far has been wonderful and long may it continue!”
Joe joined Room to Reward in November 2017 with a wealth of experience across a range of marketing platforms.
A journalism graduate, he previously lived and worked in Brussels and Dublin before returning to the South Cost and joining R2R.
Joe has been actively involved in a number of voluntary charity projects, including running football camps in South Africa, holiday clubs in Ukraine and providing respite care for SEN children.
Joe says… “It’s inspiring to read stories of ordinary people doing extraordinary things every day. People who make a difference where it matters most. It’s our privilege to give something back to them.”
Katy joined Room to Reward in January 2018. Passionate about the charity sector, she has extensive voluntary experience, including community befriending, helping out at her local Oxfam and dog shelter and helping organise Oxjam in Bournemouth.
Katy is also a former manager of a British Heart Foundation charity shop, an experience that highlighted the importance of volunteers.
Katy says… “The best thing about my role is hearing that those volunteers, who consistently put others first, are being given a little time back for themselves. It also means so much to the charities to be able to thank their Hidden Heroes.”
Andrew comes from a busy retail environment, where he worked particularly closely with the company’s charity partners, supporting them through his team training and customer service alike.
Andrew says… “I’ve already had the pleasure of seeing what a difference R2R makes for these Hidden Heroes. All of them are so exceptional and unique – well deserving of a get-away. I’m inspired by these remarkable people, as well as the Hotels who offer their rooms to make it all possible. It’s an incredible process and I am very proud to be a-part of the R2R journey”
