HOSPITALITY ACTION CELEBRATES ITS 180TH BIRTHDAY

FOLLOWING RECORD-BREAKING YEAR OF FUNDRAISING

Hospitality Action is celebrating its 180th birthday in style with a jam-packed year of fundraising events. The charity, which continues to help those in need within the hospitality industry, has set itself an ambitious target to raise at least £1.8million over the coming twelve months and is recruiting additional fundraisers to make 2017 an unforgettable year that will in turn help thousands in need.

Penny Moore, Chief Executive of Hospitality Action, says: “2016 was a record-breaking year as we managed to raise a staggering £1.61million. We continue to receive fantastic support from industry heavy-weights, whether from top venues, high-profile chefs or associations, it’s something we’re extremely grateful for.

“We want to make 2017 extra special by encouraging industry folk to take on a challenge, event or two and we are introducing even more fun events for everyone to get involved with. We’ve set our sights high but have every confidence in our supporters, both new and old, that we will have even greater things to celebrate by the end of the year.”
