Sofitel Paris La Défense employees rally in favour of the Apprentis d'Auteuil youngsters

On Wednesday, 11 February, Julien Donzel, Director of the Sofitel Paris La Défense hotel, accompanied by Christine de Longevialle, General Delegate of Solidarity Accor, handed over a check for €3,000 to Sophie Meysselle, Director of the Apprentis d'Auteuil Poullart des-Places vocational training school.

Flashback to June 2014: the Sofitel Paris La Défense employees took part for the second time in the Paris race "10 kms de L'Equipe". This sports gathering provided them with the ideal opportunity to rally in support of a cause they hold dear: the vocational training of young people of the Apprentis d'Auteuil charity for trades in the catering industry.

To support this charitable activity, Solidarity Accor funded the purchase of a €3,000 utensil washer for the training restaurant of the Poullart des-Places vocational school in Thiais.

In 2015, the Sofitel team wishes increase its support to the young apprentices of Auteuil, both inviting them to do internships at the hotel, and to discover the restaurant's "backstage" through the words of Sofitel Chef Bastien Viaud.
