Bristol hospital charity Above & Beyond to be supported by hotel and bar group Quarter

August 21, 2019

Bristol hospitality group Quarter, whose portfolio includes Racks Bar & Kitchen, Clifton Hotels Group and The Square, has chosen city-based Above & Beyond as its charity of the year.

Above & Beyond was founded in 1974 and raises around £3m a year for Bristol’s eight city centre hospitals and South Bristol Community Hospital to make a real difference to patient care and hospital experience. 

It does this by creating welcoming environments, providing the latest equipment, supporting staff training and development, and funding innovative research.

Above & Beyond was chosen from a shortlist of three charities by staff at Quarter and follows the death of someone close to the company from a heart attack. Funds raised by Quarter will be donated to the Bristol Heart Institute (BHI).

Quarter, which also owns Caffe Clifton and No.4 Clifton Village, kicked off its fundraising efforts with a party on Berkeley Square to mark the business’s 60th anniversary. Staff are also planning bake sales, pub quizzes and bingo events.

Quarter charity committee member Nathalie Crease said: “We are honoured to be working with a local charity that we have such an emotional connection with, following the death of a close friend.

“It is especially important to us that we collaborate with a local charity on our 60th anniversary year, so we can give something back to the city that has given us so much.”

Above & Beyond corporate partnerships officer Gemma Jenkins added: “It’s fantastic to be working alongside such a proudly Bristolian firm to raise funds for our hospitals right here in Bristol.

“The BHI is one of the UK’s leading cardiac centres and the leading centre for keyhole surgery so the money raised really will be invaluable.

“All the money raised pays for world-class equipment, the very best facilities, innovative research and training and development for NHS staff.”
