The Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites in Beaufort donated a couple of bicycles and helmets for students randomly chosen among those who follow rules at St. Helena Elementary School.

Bob Barnes, general manager of the Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites in Beaufort, said the bicycles are meant to encourage the school’s students to excel. “We hope these bicycles encourage all of the students to do their best and become successful members of the community.”

The hotel plans to continue its partnership with St. Helena Elementary School and continue to donate bicycles in support of the program.
