Hospitality Action Fundraising Meal at Holkham

Tuesday 4th June

The charity Hospitality Action was established in 1837 as the Hospitality Industry Benevolent Organisation and has offered vital assistance to all who work, or have worked within hospitality in the UK and who find themselves in crisis. The charity supports people who are suffering from life altering illnesses, experiencing poverty, bereavement and domestic violence and those who are retired from the industry but who may feel isolated and alone.

On Tuesday 4th June in The Lady Elizabeth Wing at Holkham, Hospitality Action is set to mark the launch of its East Anglia fundraising board with a celebratory evening. Guests will be treated to five delicious courses crafted by local award-winning chefs in memory of hospitality employee Nyall Brown, who took his own life last spring. The evening will aim to raise awareness of Hospitality Action’s work across the region.

Those cooking will include fundraising board member Charlie Hodson as well as a host of other award-winning regional chefs, who will champion local produce, showcasing the best East Anglia has to offer. Charlie Hodson comments: “Mental health issues are no different than any other life-threatening illnesses. We’re not afraid of telling people if we have cancer, so why do we still struggle with opening up about our inner struggles? I want to talk to people in my industry: to the producers, the farmers, the chefs and to the students and my work with Hospitality Action and our inaugural event this summer will help to make this possible.”

The black-tie event will include a reception prior to the five-course feast.

Tickets: £75 each or £750 for a table of 10. Please email astrid@hospitalityaction.org.uk to book a place or call 020 3004 5503.
