W serves up Iftar for cabs
Doha, 10 August, 2011. In keeping with the spirit of the Holy Month of Ramadan, W Hotel & Residences, style icon for Doha, is providing Iftar for cabs for the second year running.
Edgar Vaudeville, PR & Events Manager, said: “W Doha is taking part in this Starwood charity initiative to give back to the taxi driver community, by providing Iftar for them as they line up to receive delicious parcels of W culinary delights. This is our way of saying thank you to all the local cabs for their support of our guests during the year.”
Edgar Vaudeville added: “Ramadan is a special time for giving and receiving and we recognise that it is often difficult for cab drivers to find time for Iftar. This initiative was warmly welcomed last year, so we’re really looking forward to helping the taxi drivers once more.”
