Paul Heathcote helps raise £10,000 for Hospitality Action

Chef-restaurateur Paul Heathcote has helped to raise £10,000 for industry charity Hospitality Action with a Spanish-themed dinner at his Manchester restaurant Grado.

The event last week, sponsored by Allied Irish Bank's Hotels Sector team, attracted a crowd of 100 hoteliers, restaurateurs and suppliers.

The line-up included InterContinental and Marriott hotels as well as chefs Paul Kitching and Michael Riemenschneider from the Michelin-starred Abbey in Penzance in Cornwall.

A raffle and charity auction helped bring the grand total raised on the night to £10,000.

The money will go towards some of the most vulnerable people in the hospitality sector, including those suffering from life-changing illnesses or experiencing poverty, domestic violence or bereavement.
