Hospitality industry lunch hopes to raise £100,000 for Ukraine

A group of hospitality leaders will be hosting a lunch event in London next month hoping to raise over £100,000 for those affected by the conflict in Ukraine.

Taking place at JW Marriott Grosvenor House hotel on 5 April, the three-course lunch will be created by the 494-bedroom property's executive head chef Nigel Boschetti and Richard Corrigan, chef-patron of Corrigan's.

Stuart Bowery, multi property general manager at Grosvenor House, and the driving force behind the event, encouraged the industry to attend Lunch4Ukraine and support the cause, with tables costing £1,000 and all proceeds going towards the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) Ukraine appeal.

He added: "Across the hospitality industry, many of us are already showing incredible support to Ukraine through providing donations and refuge [to those] who need accommodation as well as jobs.

"The resilience of our industry over the past two years has demonstrated what we can achieve when we work together towards assisting a common cause. We wanted to bring our industry together to make a difference to the people of Ukraine facing an uncertain future.

"UKHospitality is already working with the government to coordinate offers of support and this lunch will serve as a catalyst to turn our focus to the ways in which our industry can provide funds, homes and jobs towards our neighbours in Ukraine as they face a time of immense crisis."

Lunch4Ukraine is being supported by UKHospitality, the Master Innholders, The Caterer, Gold Key Media, Custard Communications, Hospitality Action and the Institute of Hospitality.
