Lite@Nite is an ongoing fundraising project from Thistle hotels and we’re hosting and taking part in fantastic, inspiring events every year, to support some truly amazing good causes!


Lite@Nite is the fundraising project of Thistle Hotels, a project under which our employees and partners will organise and host (and many will participate) in bold, challenging and radical activities, all in the name of raising cash for kids. All the kids charities work tirelessly to provide support and protection to thousands of kids around the UK, and we are committed to give as much support and raise as much cash for them as we can. We are extremely proud to be in long term partnership with 5 charities: British Triathlon Foundation Trust, Kidscape, Bernardo‘s, Kids Company, The Children’s Society!


Every summer we will be hosting radical events to inspire everyone to participate, support and sponsor for our partners – this year we’re going to run two different events at the same time!

Kids Triathlon

Give your kids the chance to win a money can’t buy prize, 10 kids and their families from each “kids triathlon” event will win an all expenses paid overnight trip to London, with a place on the final leg of our relay which will include exclusively running across the finish line at the World Triathlon Championships in Hyde Park! In association with the British Triathlon Foundation, we are hosting 5 kids triathlon events at: Glasgow, Newcastle, Manchester, Birmingham and Bristol across this summer.

It’s FREE for your child to enter and each child taking part will receive a goody bag including: branded running top, digital candle, string bag, achievement medal, drink/snack and completion certificate. All you need to do is to register your kid on our website.


Employee Team Relay

This is one amazing relay challenge. Together as a team our employees will run, bike, and swim 1400 miles from Inverness to London. It’s the opportunity of a lifetime and we’re all in it together. We’ll pass all 36 of our hotels up and down the UK, racing miles to raise smiles for some truly outstanding children’s charities.

Every leg of this epic race will be ‘owned’ by participating Thistle hotels and they will be responsible for co-ordinating local requirements for each stage of the relay with the central organising committee. There will be a £1,000 cash prize for the top 3 fundraising hotels! We can only do this as a team, so let’s all join forces and become one radical Team Relay!


 Lite@Nite is our project, our way to raise money for worthy causes, our way to bring our employees together regardless of their geographic position and put something back into the local and national community, focused on possibly the most vulnerable people of all, children.

Our aim, is to engage our entire company and all our team members, across the country, to be part of something amazing, for the benefit of vulnerable kids.

We believe in this, we think it’s the right thing to do, our employee’s agree, and we hope you do too.
