For the third consecutive year, a combined CSR event by many of Hua Hin’
leading resorts has resulted in the donation of motorbike helmets to local school children.
Helmet Heros 2018 was held at the Sheraton Hua Hin Resort & Spa with children from three schools learning the importance of road safety; particularly being encouraged to wear helmets after receiving and decorating their own helmets. Almost 400 children attended the event from the Ban Smor Prong School, Nong Kae School and BoFai School. They were able to enjoy a series of fun activities, including painting their new helmets, while also learning about the critical issue of road safety.
This annual CSR event was supported by the local government, led by Khun Bussaba Chokesuchat, Deputy Mayor of Hua Hin municipality, Khun Sommai Sooksai, Director of Hua Hin Educational Department, officers from the Hua Hin traffic police and officers from the tourist police, who helped to educate the children. This marks the third consecutive year for this important event, as Hua Hin’s hotel community comes together once again to improve the safety of its children, many of whom are risking their lives each day simply by travelling to and from school.
A spokesman for the resorts involved said “By participating in this helmet event for the third consecutive year we are aiming to educate even more local children about the importance of road safety and wearing a helmet. If the helmets we donate save the life of just one child, this event will have been a tremendous success.
I would like to thank everyone for taking part this CSR activity and helping to tackle such an important issue.” Hotels taking part in the helmet initiative included the Sheraton Hua Hin Resort and Spa, Sheraton Hua Hin Pranburi Villas, InterContinental Hua Hin, Holiday Inn Hua Hin, Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas Hua Hin, Hyatt Regency Hua Hin & The BARAI, Amari Hua Hin, AVANI Hua Hin Resort & Villas, Anantara Hua Hin Resort and Spa, Ibis Hua Hin Hotel, Chiva-Som International Health Resort, Marriott Resort & Spa and G Hua Hin while San Paolo Hospital Hua Hin also contributed to the event.
