Industry charity Hospitality Action ](http://www.hospitalityaction.org.uk/)is giving away a luxury break at a four-star hotel in Florida as the star prize in a draw that forms part of its fund-raising week from 14 to 20 May.
The prize draw is open to all hospitality workers as well as their friends and family at the cost of just £5 for a book of five tickets. The winner will enjoy a three-night stay for two at Red Carnation Hotels' Chesterfield Palm Beach hotel, with flights included in the package.
Other goodies up for grabs include a 32in LCD TV (donated by Beacon Purchasing), shopper vouchers and champagne.
"Our industry is full of dedicated hard workers but often a small change in circumstances is all that is needed to tip the balance and turn a manageable situation into an unmanageable one," said Penny Moore, chief executive officer at Hospitality Action.
"The past year has seen our grants team working harder than ever to process the applications we receive. In 2011, we helped over 1400 people - 40% needed support during a life-changing illness."
To buy tickets for the draw, which takes place on Friday 20 July, call the Hospitality Action fundraising team on 020 3004 5504.
