BUY ONE,
GIVE ONE.

Warm up with Penta and donate to someone in need.

WHAT IS #PENTAGIVES?

The winter months are here again, and for those of us that are lucky enough to enjoy the comforts of home, it can be a cheerful and cosy time of year. However, for those less fortunate, it can be one of the toughest. Now more than ever, we need to look after each other, so we are bringing back our ‘buy one, give one’ winter campaign. The way we understand ‘hospitality’ goes well beyond our guests, and deep into our local communities.

In 2019 we donated over 6,300 soups to local charities. Fast forward to 2021: it’s time to give back to our communities and we need YOUR help. In addition to our wildly successful soups, we partnered with the great folks at Stand4Socks to warm not just bellies but also feet... It’s really simple: all it takes is a pair of socks and a nice soup. Read on to find out how we do it, together.

Soul warmers and sole warmers.

WARM IT FORWARD. OUR CHARITIES.

We know that when it comes to doing good in our communities, there is no such thing as one-size-fits-all. This is why each of our hotels collaborates with a local charity of their own choosing, with whom they can have a direct and positive impact on their community. Chat with our colleagues in the hotels about their charity partner or click the button below.

DO GOOD, FEEL GOOD. HOW CAN YOU HELP?

We have created several ways through which you can participate:

1. GET THE BEST DEAL

When booking your next stay at a Pentahotel, you can immediately add the Soup & Socks add-on to your reservation for just 12€/£. Penta will donate one soup and one pair of socks to local people in need on your behalf!

When you arrive at the hotel, your comfy and colourful socks will be waiting for you and you will get to enjoy a bowl of tasty soup in the Pentalounge.. By booking ahead, you get a nice discount on the combo price. This add-on is only available for bookings placed between 1 December 2021 and 28 February 2022, but your stay with us can be anytime (or until sold out!).

2. EAT A SOUP

Forgot to book the add-on? No problem.

You can order a soup of the day from the menu in our lounge. One of our three delicious soups will be available every day during the campaign. It goes without saying that we are going to donate one soup on your behalf.

3. GRAB A PAIR

We will also have a limited number of socks available for purchase at the hotel – just ask at the bar. Risky, but it works like a charm as a last-minute gift to bring home.

As above, this will result in the donation of one pair of socks.

4. THROW A PARTY

Book your next event at Penta. Christmas, New Year’s Eve, the annual company gathering, a small meeting, whatever. All counts! We will donate a soup on behalf of each attendee at your event.

JOSH AND HIS SOCKS.

"What if socks could change the world?" Stand4Socks started when founder Josh Turner asked his friends this simple question.

Did you know that socks are the most requested item by homeless shelters because they are rarely donated? Unlike how we donate money or an old coat - you wouldn't donate your old holey socks. Yet if you are homeless, you tend to walk more than average person and don't have the luxury of fresh socks. This can lead to serious foot health issues, from something as simple as lacking a pair of socks.

The socks we will donate have been specifically created by Stand4Socks to best meet the needs of the homeless. They are durable but versatile, with antibacterial properties that reduce the need to wash them often, and reinforced seams and darker colours to give them longer lifespan and less visible wear.

The socks you will get as a Penta guest will be different. We created two limited edition designs that will make sure you stand out at any pyjama party or serious office meeting.

A lot of hotels talk about being one with their neighbourhood, but a lot of that is just… talk. At Penta, we take our communities seriously, and we think that if you walk through our doors, you should also give a damn. So let’s do this together.

JOHN AND HIS SOUPS.

We believe that when you do something good, you actually feel good too. By giving back, we do not want to simply transfer money into a bank account; we contribute by getting involved directly where we can make a real difference. From this philosophy, the #PENTAGIVES idea was born.

A key player behind this is our long-standing Executive Chef, John King. He has worked closely to create the recipes especially for this initiative.

The soups are freshly prepared in the kitchens of our hotels and we are happy to be able to share them with you at home as well.

BOOK YOUR EVENT AND DO GOOD TOO.

Soup is not the only thing we are good at. We throw a pretty great party too, as well as large-scale events.

So what better way to make an even bigger impact in our local communities than to join these things together?!

Until 28th February 2022, when you book an event with us, Penta will automatically donate a soup on behalf of each delegate attending your event. Just book during these dates and the event itself can take place at any time in the future.

1 DELEGATE = 1 SOUP TO A PERSON IN NEED

Best thing? You take the credit. All businesses confirming an event during the campaign period will have their names displayed on a ‘hall of fame’ at the hotel – letting the local community know you care for them.

Curious? Drop us an email, and our Events Team will get in touch.
