How To Knit!

Just attended a training on ‘how to knit’, organized by Banyan Tree Bangkok’s Human Resources and Training department!

Inspired by Alison Murray and Bangkok National Hospital, the ‘Let’s Knit for the Needy’ project arose as many people lack adequate warm clothing for the approaching winter season. Banyan Tree associates were knitting 15cm x 15cm square pieces that will be put together to create a targeted 111 blankets which will be donated to the needy.

Associates in Banyan Tree Bangkok honed their newly-acquired knitting skills during their lunch breaks with different materials, styles and exuberant shades.

Well done Banyan Tree Bangkok!

Was in Chiangmai!

As part of our group-wide Greening Communities program, and in line with our Corporate Social Responsibility values, 20 associates from Banyan Tree Bangkok, led by Ms. Waewdao Chaithirasakul, CSR Champion and Director of Public Relations, went up to Doi Inthanon National Park, in Chiang Mai.

From the 22nd to 24th of May 2009, the team from Banyan Tree Bangkok planted a total of 250 trees, and gave gifts of trekking and camping equipment to the officers of Doi Inthanon National Park.

Well done!
