Tyhe team at mercure edinburgh city on their charity sponsored cycle


The team here at Mercure Edinburgh City Princes Street Hotel is very close knit, which is why our famous hospitality is second to none.

We have a dedicated charity leader, Paula Black, who organises and coordinates all our fundraising activities. She puts together a fantastic fundraising calendar every year so we have regular events planned throughout the year to support our chosen charity..

Each year in August the team get together for a cycle relay on a static bike on Princes Street, just outside the hotel!

We’ve cycled the equivalent distance from our hotel in Edinburgh to the Jupiter Hotels head office in High Wycombe and last year we completed the distance around the Scottish hotels as far north to Inverness and west to Ayr.

We also run a variety of fundraising activities throughout the year, from staff quizzes, sweepstakes, bake sales, sponsored walks and runs, through to our customers kindly donating £1 to use the cloakroom during the Christmas party season.

Everyone gets involved in some way and that’s what makes the difference – it’s a real team effort. Last year the Mercure Edinburgh Princes Street Hotel raised £3,827.37, with the Jupiter Hotels group collectively raising an amazing £50,000.

We commissioned a local photographer to take photos of the local area and the images chosen were of Cramond island walk, the iconic Forth Road Bridge and Roslin Glen.

We’re sure you’ll like them as much as we do.
