Waiters Day races are here - 20th October 2016

Front of house professionals will be racing through London’s Hyde Park and other locations across the UK on Thursday 20th October.

National Waiters Day, led by The Springboard Charity and sponsored by Bunzl, aims to celebrate and showcase the dedication and hard work of front of house roles. Five waiters’ races are taking place across the UK as part of National Waiters Day. The flagship event takes place in London’s Hyde Park, while races are being held at Wivenhoe House (Colchester), Tameside College (Manchester), Linthwaite House (Cumbria) and The Grand (Eastbourne).

Fred Sirieix, General Manager at Galvin at Windows, said: “I am very proud and excited to lead the celebrations for National Waiters Day again on 20th October - it’s a truly wonderful day to celebrate the ocean of career opportunities within the hospitality industry, as well as the hard work of all front of house professionals. There has never been a more exciting time to both join and succeed in this very special industry. If you can dream it, you can do it.”

Anne Pierce, Springboard’s CEO, said: “National Waiters Day was created to showcase the range of roles available in front of house. It’s the ideal opportunity for jobseekers and businesses, with activities ranging from skills challenges to talks, and of course the Waiters Day Race!”

Entry to the race costs a £10 registration fee. The funds raised will help Springboard’s Food & Beverage (FAB) programme in schools, which are designed to encourage students to explore and consider careers in front of house, aligning with the curriculum.
