Thank You to The Shangri-La Hotel

1st January, 1970

We are delighted to say thank you to The Shangri-La Hotel for giving us a cheque of £2,088.96 representing the profits from the sales of Romeo Fox!

During construction of The Shard, a fox managed to bypass security and even reached the high levels of the building. The Shangri-La decided to use this story as a way of raising funds for Blackfriars Settlement. They produced a soft toy fox called Romeo Fox, with one being placed in every room for guests to purchase. Each Romeo has a tag around its neck bearing Blackfriars Settlement's logo and that of The Shangri-La on one side and a small piece about us on the other.
