Hospitality Action has launched an online charity auction to benefit employees in need of its support this festive season.
Now in its fourth year the annual auction has something for everyone and could mean you don't have to face the maddening Christmas queues at the shops on the search for presents.
Although there are a wealth of items on offer highlights include: a luxury break for two to Fota Island in Ireland; a top of the range hi-fi system, flat-screen LCD TV and iPod nano; as well as two nights at London's Sloane Club for some old school glamour.
The auction closes on 6 December at 2pm so get online now. Last year's auction raised nearly £4,000 to support hospitality workers that need a helping hand.
Hospitality Action supports those in the industry in need through its Life Support programme and is the only dedicated charity for the hospitality sector.
