Cooking for Friends

163To celebrate its 24th Anniversary this month, Pathumwan Princess Hotel is launching a new initiative designed to help the less fortunate in Bangkok, especially disadvantaged children. “Cooking for Friends” aims to take advantage of the renowned culinary skills and facilities at the hotel to provide much-needed meals for those in most need.

The first event took place on Friday 11th September when 200 breakfast meals were cooked and donated to the Bangkok School for the Blind in Bangkok’s Ratchathewi District.

The school was originally founded by Miss Genevieve Colfield, a blind American lady in 1939 as the “School for the Blind”, and in 1960 it was classified by the Thai government as a private charity school. In 1977 it changed its name to “Bangkok School for the Blind” under the Royal Patronage of H.M. the Queen. The School does superb work providing general education for those with impaired eyesight at the early childhood level, as well as supporting students in secondary education, and the hotel was delighted to be able to support this very worthy charity.

Pictured at Bangkok School for the Blind on Friday were (left to right) Mr. Sutat Chankrajang, Junior Assistant Security Manager, Ms. Nitchamon Sornchai, Restaurant Supervisor Terrazza Italian Restaurant, General Manager Mr. Stefan Heintze, Mr. Bundit Pudyen, School Director of The Bangkok School for the Blind, Ms. Chatchalai Phokan, the hotel’s Public Relations and Marketing Manager and Mr. Lanka Fernando, Director of Food & Beverage.
