Following last year’s success, Winterhalter will hold their second National KP Day on June 22, 2016 to help raise up to £1000 for Springboard, the charity that helps disadvantaged people find work in the catering industry.

Stephen Kinkead, managing director of Winterhalter UK said: “The first National KP Day was amazing.

“Chefs and managers from every part of the UK took part, putting the spotlight on their KPs.  There were loads of great pics on Twitter – people had a lot of fun.”

Winterhalter is once again inviting operators, managers or chefs to tweet photographs of their KPs, using the hashtag #kpday. For each of the first 1,000 pictures, Winterhalter will donate £1 to the Springboard charity.

Stephen added: “It’s simple: take a pic on your smartphone, then tweet it using #kpday – maybe adding a comment or two, if it takes your fancy!”

All photographs will be uploaded to a gallery on the KP of the Year Awards website, www.kpoftheyear.com

KP of the Year was first set up last year by Winterhalter to help celebrate the role of the kitchen porter and raise money for the Springboard charity.
