Hospitality Action calls on all industry workers to support charity week

Hospitality Action (HA) is calling for all industry workers to raise at least £5 each in support of this year's Hospitality Action Week.

The fundraising week runs from 17 to 23 May to raise money to care for hospitality workers past and present who have fallen on hard times.

This year, HA is asking everyone who works in the industry to raise at least £5, revealed Penny Moore, HA chief executive.

"Just think about how much good work we could do if every person in the two million-strong workforce raised just £5," she said. "Hospitality Action Week is a fantastic opportunity to bring employees together and celebrate the industry in which we work."

Last year's event raised more than £100,000 through an array of activities from themed lunches, football matches and doughnut-eating competitions right through to a sponsored 3663 team meeting held at the top of Scaffell Pike.

Susie Wadsworth, assistant human resources manager at the Royal Garden hotel, said of last year's event: "We had great fun with our various fundraising activities from a marshmallow eating competition, to a raffle to win theatre tickets, not to mention our photo competition. We're great supporters of HA; they've always been very supportive of our employees, both past and present."

Entering the charity's Big Prize Draw is just one way you can help raise £5 and be in with a chance of winning the first prize of a five-star trip for two to New York.
