A NEW hotel that is set to open in Eastleigh has invited nominations for charity partners.

Village Hotel Club Southampton Eastleigh is due to officially open on May 17 following a multi-million-pound investment.

The 153-bedroom hotel on Bournemouth Road will include facilities such as an indoor heated pool, a sauna, a steam room, a whirlpool and a gym.

Now though, to mark the opening, and to reiterate Village Hotel Club’s commitment to "supporting the communities it operates in", the hotel is inviting nominations for nearby charities and groups to receive fundraising and volunteering support as part of its Village Green initiative.

Through Village Green, hotel staff are due to spend time volunteering in the community over the next year, supported by regular fundraising events.

Nominations to the initiative can be made by residents or the charities themselves with the hotel saying it is "committed towards helping the chosen charities raise their profile and build further local support."
