Graham Donnolly announced as WINNER!
We couldn't be happier for our Liner Crew member Graham Donnolly, announced as WINNER of the Unsung Hero Award at the first Liverpool Hoteliers Association Annual Awards.
Graham Donnelly is a true example of an Unsung Hero. His role as a Kitchen Porter at The Liner Hotel is crucial to ensure the smooth running of the Catering operation. Working across three kitchens, his passion for a clean and safe kitchen and unrivalled level of assistance allows the Catering and Operations team to perform to their optimum level. His cheery and helpful personality and totally unassuming character make him a pleasure to work with. (nomination)
More than 200 industry Guests attended the glittering celebration on the 20th October, joining up with Liverpool Hoteliers Association and World Class Service to recognise and reward the 'Heroes' of our Industry. Hilton Liverpool were the host Hotel and staged a showcase Halloween theme event which included fabulous food, drink, decoration and entertainment.
Celebrations didn't end there as our Sales & Wedding co-ordinator Jessica Gill was recognised as a FINALIST in the Rising Star category. A huge achievement and fantastic reflection of her skills as a super dedicated member of our Crew.
The Liner Crew were suited and booted to support and celebrate on the night and raised the roof on the announcement of Graham as a winner and Jessica as a finalist. The night ended with jackets off and disco moves all round!
CONGRATULATIONS GRAHAM and JESSICA.....The Liner Crew are proud of you!
