Celebrate your KP on National Kitchen Porter day in aid of Hospitality Action

National KP day seeks to raise awareness of kitchen porters across the industry, with organiser Winterhalter using the day to highlight the role of KPs and raise money for good causes.

This year National KP day falls on Saturday 22 June and is an opportunity for the hardworking kitchen brigade to have a bit of fun while raising cash for charity.

If you have fantastic KPs that you want to celebrate, simply share a picture of them on Twitter with the hashtag #kpday. For every picture received, Winterhalter will donate £1 to industry charity Hospitality Action, up to a maximum of £1,000.

Share a photo of your hardworking kitchen porter on National KP Day

pitality Action supports anyone who works or has worked in the UK's hospitality industry who find themselves in crisis. It provides emergency grants for those in need, support for retired workers and education for students.

"We've raised a lot of money for great causes in the past," said Stephen Kinkead, managing director of Winterhalter UK. "And we've had some great photos too, it's always very heartening how eager the industry is to celebrate the work KPs do. We're hoping to be able to raise lots of money for Hospitality Action. It's a great cause, so put the date in your diary and get ready to join in the celebrations this year!"

National KP Day is part of Winterhalter's annual quest to find the KP of the year. You can submit your nomination here.

The deadline is 9 August 2019
