Hospitality Action Christmas Online Auction open for bids

The Staff Canteen

The charity, Hospitality Action opened their annual Hospitality Action Christmas Online Auction today.

Now in its thirteenth year, the annual Hospitality Action Christmas Online Auction opened today (December 1) to help raise money for those in need in the hospitality industry.

All funds raised from the auction will support those in need through the work of Hospitality Action, the trade charity offering a crucial lifeline to people of all ages, working and retired, from the hospitality industry – something that’s especially important at this time of year.

Last Christmas the online action raised £4,000 and with 31 new lots on offer this year, the charity hopes to raise a record sum.

Gifts and experiences kindly donated by Hospitality Action supporters includes an overnight stay, dinner and breakfast at The Halkin by COMO in London, champagne afternoon tea for two at Magazine Restaurant in Hyde Park, London, an overnight stay with dinner, breakfast and full use of spa facilities at The Marriott in Edinburgh, Scotland, a selection of hampers, an Apple Watch, Champagne and much more.

The auction will close at 2pm on Friday, December 9. You can visit the online auction here
