UK charity Hospitality Action is gearing up for the start of its sixth annual Hospitality Action Week from 12 to 18 May.

The campaign involves all sectors in the hospitality industry and aims to raise funds to help its most vulnerable members.

A number of industry establishments have already signed up to take part, including all UK Red Carnation Hotels, Bunzl Catering Supplies, Malmaison Liverpool and Manchester, a number of Living Ventures restaurants and Radisson Blu Edwardian Manchester. Several catering colleges have also joined the movement.

Hospitality Action can provide a fundraising pack with ideas and suggestions for activities, which could include race nights, cake sales, garden tours or massages.

Penny Moore, chief executive of Hospitality Action, said: “With hospitality being the fourth-largest employer in the UK, with 3m workers, there is massive potential for us to help our colleagues in need.”

In 2013 Hospitality Action spent £508,000 to support past and present hospitality workers in need, with the support of 1,696 people. About 77 per cent of those who helped were under 60 – up 18 per cent from 2012.

You can still register for Hospitality Action Week by emailing fundraising@hospitalityaction.org.uk ​to get your fundraising pack.
