MOVEMBER @ ASTOR HYDE PARK
The staff at Astor Hyde Park at the moment is predominantly male, so we thought we need to do something to take care of all that testosterone.
This is why all the guys of the staff have decided to get involved in Movember by growing a moustache for the 30 days of November, to spark conversation and raise funds. This will be part of the Charity Breakfast project, but all the funds raised will be devolved to the cause ofmen’s health.

Using the moustache as a catalyst, the idea is to bring about change and give men the opportunity and confidence to learn and talk about their health and take action when needed. You can read more about this project here.
Our guys will all shave tomorrow morning and we’ll take track of all the sexy ‘staches during the whole month and update you with pictures from the hostel. If you don’t want to miss any update about our heroes like our Facebook page here.
All the ladies coming to Astor Hyde Park during the next month have been warned! We hope you’ll be able to resist all that masculinity on the corridors.
CHARITY BREAKFAST – CHILDREN MONTH
What’s the best way to start a day? A good breakfast and a good deed!
This is why we’re happy to introduce the Charity Breakfast at Astor Hostels.
Although we ask our guests a donation of 50p for the breakfast, everyone can donate as much as they want and 100% of what we get goes directly to a charity.
Moreover, our guests also get to decide which charity they want to donate to! Every month we’ll have three charities on our wall and everyone can vote for the one they want to become the “Charity of the Month” which will be the one to receive all the proceeds.
September is the Children Month and the following are the charities you’ll find on the wall:
- Great Ormond Street Hospital: the Country’s leading centre for treating sick children. The fundraising income allows Great Ormond Street Hospital to remain at the forefront of child healthcare. The charity aims to raise over £50 million every year to complete the next two phases of redevelopment, as well as provide substantially more fundraising directly for research.

- Whizz Kidz: a charity that works to transform the lives of disabled children across the UK, supporting them to become confident and independent young adults by providing the vital equipment and life skills they need to reach their full potential. There are an estimated 70,000 disabled children and young people in the UK waiting for a wheelchair that fits their young lives.Click here for more info about this charity.
- Starlight: the aim of this charity is to brighten the lives of seriously and terminally ill children by wish granting and also by providing fun, entertainment, laughter and distraction for children in every children’s hospital ward and hospice throughout the United Kingdom. All Starlight’s activities are aimed at distracting children from the pain, fear and isolation they can often feel as a result of their illnesses. Click here for more info about this charity.
Thank you all guys for your help, we’re sure that all together we can make something great for all these people that need some help.
