Dalata Hotel Group, which operates Clayton and Maldron Hotels and is the largest hotel
operator in Ireland, will be supporting the Marie Keating Foundation, as the company’s charity
partner in the Republic of Ireland over a three-year period.
The Marie Keating Foundation is focused on raising the awareness of cancer, and the
importance of early detection. The Foundation also provides a range of support services for
patients at every step of a cancer journey.
Together, Dalata Hotel Group and Marie Keating Foundation will strive to deliver ‘Dalata’s
Drive to Defeat Cancer’. This will involve fundraising to support Marie Keating’s mobile
information units to go nationwide and facilitate over 100,000 individual conversations
between nurses and members of the public on spotting the signs of cancer. The co-branded
mobile units will also visit Dalata hotels across Ireland, with the local community invited to
come along, helping save lives.
Des McCann, Chief Operating Officer at Dalata - “Dalata Hotel Group are delighted to be
partnered with the Marie Keating Foundation on Dalata’s Drive to Defeat Cancer campaign.
Through our Dalata Digs Deep fundraising initiatives, our colleagues will facilitate Marie
Keating Foundation nurses to have over 100,000 lifesaving conversations on spotting the early
signs of cancer. We are so proud to see the positive social impact our people continue to make
in our communities.”
