Don't be a spectator; go the distance in aid of Hospitality Action.

Summer 2024 boasts the Euros, Wimbledon, and the Olympics which makes it the perfect moment for the hospitality industry to settle its sporting scores and crown its athletic champions!

We want you to make it a summer to remember by challenging you and your colleagues to collectively travel 40,000 miles and raise as much money as possible for Hospitality Action.

Whether you walk, run, cycle, wheel or swim, now is the time to settle those inter-team scores. You could…

  • Resolve the age-old question of whether front of house or back of house have the greatest stamina.
  • Prove that housekeeping can achieve more steps in a day than the restaurant floor team.
  • Show that baristas can pump more iron than bartenders.
  • Stage a company-wide 24-hour relay race on a static bike or rowing machine.
  • Challenge another outlet within your business or a competitor to log more distance or raise more funds. 

For those who don’t fancy the cut and thrust of competition, you could…

  • Embark on an epic dog walk. Tackle your first-ever 5k run.
  • Play a friendly game of tennis, squash, or badminton with a friend.
  • Sign-up to a Colour Run, Tough Mudder or Sky Dive. Swim 10 lengths of the pool.
  • Cycle between sister properties, collecting sponsorship money along the way.

We need you and your colleagues to raise as much as possible to support an industry in crisis.

The cost-of-living crisis is destroying the lives and livelihoods of hospitality workers and their families. We know our industry will recover, but in 2024, more people are struggling than at any other time in the last 50 years and we’re here to support them.

The money you raise could help people just like Ms A who says: “Having to deal with a diagnosis of aggressive cancer, then major surgery, and now chemo, have been hard enough, but the added fear of rent arrears and electricity bills has made things much harder. I can now pay off my arrears, keep up with my bills and put the focus on healing so I can go back to work. The work you do is just invaluable, and it has made a huge difference to me! I really cannot say thank you enough.”
