Support your local hospice – hire a meeting room

Posted on 20 February 2013

Businesses looking for prestigious meeting and training rooms close to the centre of Canterbury have the chance to view the facilities of the Ann Robertson Centre in London Road when it holds an open day on Friday 8 March.

The centre can be viewed between 8.30am and 6pm. Anybody booking rooms at the time will be given a 10 per cent discount off room hire charge.

Ann Robertson Centre can be hired for a full range of events including product launches, awaydays and staff training. It has been set up to lend professionalism to business events, ensuring conferences and formal meetings to create the right impression for the centre’s clients.

Centre coordinator Wendy Kelk said: “We have been fully open for just over a month and already made a positive impression with businesses and groups arranging meetings and training sessions.”

The centre has three good size training rooms, the largest of which can seat 50 people in theatre style or 24 when set up for a round the table meeting. It has a large flatscreen TV on one wall provided with connections for laptops and projectors.

There are two further rooms which can seat 12-14 people in classroom style or up to 33 when arranged in theatre settings. Again, both have large TVs with laptop and projector connections. For those events which call for hands on demonstrations and practical working, a clinical room has been created. To make communication that much easier, there is free Wifi access throughout the centre.

Ann Robertson Centre is owned and operated by Pilgrims Hospices. Profits from hiring out the rooms help cover the costs of providing patient care at the charity’s three hospices. It costs £10 million each year to provide services free of charge to people across east Kent with life limiting illnesses and their families and carers.
