The lead up to the Easter weekend will see the Imperial Hotel play host to a very special Easter Chocolate Sale.

The two day event, which began yesterday, marks the beginning of a charity partnership between Pieta House and the Flynn family owned Imperial House

Pastry chefs Rebecca English and Bernadette Harrington will create a selection of chocolate treats including Easter eggs, chocolate hampers and muffins, all of which will be on sale in the foyer of the hotel.

Speaking at the launch of the partnership Frits Potgieter, General Manager of the Imperial Hotel said: “We are very proud to lend our support to this worthy cause for the coming year, and through this partnership we hope to make a real difference in helping Pieta House to further raise awareness around self-harm and suicide in Ireland.”

This is the first of a number of fundraising events and initiatives that are planned for the year ahead, which will see the Imperial Hotel staffs participation in Pieta House’s ‘Darkness Into Light’ walk this May, and the continuation of the hotel’s annual Black Tie Gala Ball which takes place in October.

Funding and Advocacy Coordinator for Pieta House, Angela Horgan said: “Of all of Pieta House’s centres, the Cork service is the busiest, seeing an average of 84 people every day. The service is completely free of charge, but we rely heavily on donations to meet this need.

“All funds raised in Cork directly support the Cork centre and engaging with organisations such as the Imperial Hotel is so important to the work we do. We are so grateful to the wonderful team in the hotel who have pledged their support to our cause, support like this helps us to bring people from a place where suicide and self-harm seem like the only option, to one of comfort and hope,” she added.
