Charity to be official charity partner for National B&B week

Posted on

The Family Holiday Association is delighted to be partnering with online booking specialist, eviivo, for National B&B week taking place from 18th -24th March.

The week will celebrate and raise awareness of the hard work of the British independent accommodation sector and follows the success of the inaugural National B&B Day in 2018.

This year, founders eviivo and the B&B Association, are joining forces with the broader travel industry and are encouraging B&B owners to offer guests exclusive extra perks.  From discounts on a stay, to luxury chocolates, champagne on arrival or afternoon tea, the hope is that this will encourage as many holidaymakers as possible to book a room and take a break.

To support our charity, B&B owners are being invited to offer two-night stays in their accommodation to struggling families during National B&B Week and beyond. They also have the option to add a new booking mechanic to their website which will allow their customers to donate £1 when they confirm their stay.

Ed Goldswain, Marketing Director at eviivo, said: “There will be various activities planned throughout the week that guests and hosts can get involved in, including supporting the Family Holiday Association in their outstanding charitable work, helping families most in need of a break, struck by severe or long-term illness, mental health issues, bereavement or domestic violence. We want to encourage as many people as possible to take a break during National B&B Week, and we hope to see thousands of B&B owners taking part to make the week a huge success.”
