The Nation’s love for Her Majesty Queen Sirikit knows no bounds and it was inevitable that on the occasion of Her 83rd Birthday the celebration for our Queen of Hearts’ untiring work on behalf of the Thai people was very much focused on the nationwide Bike for Mom. Staff members of Dusit Thani Hua Hin also marked the occasion in this way.
However, whilst cycling was taking centre stage for so many, it was Dusit Thani Hua Hin’s own leading Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative to support youth football in the local community through the highly successful Dusit Thani Hua Hin Football Academy (DTHHFA) that really came to the fore on this Mother’s Day.
The academy, who boast children of the staff amongst well over 90 registered players and is preparing hard for the start of a new league season in September, teamed up with the hotel to organise a Cha-am Beach and Temple Cleaning Teambuilding Activity for players, coaches, family members, who were joined by Dusit Thani Hua Hin Staff. A working party of almost 100 people took part, leaving from the hotel for Cha-am Beach with a police escort which later took the convoy to Mrigadayawan Temple, where the group also had the opportunity to make merit, as well as donate towards the temple’s upkeep and construction of a central image of the Lord Buddha.
Athough tiring, this most gratifying contribution to the local Cha-am community by Dusit Thani Hua Hin and Dusit Thani Hua Hin Football Academy was extremely well received, gaining extensive coverage from the local media, including Cha-Am Charlie Cable TV on behalf of Thai TV Channel 7.
