Stand up and be counted: How you can lend your support this year

2018 was yet another record 12 months for HA as we spent over £880,000 supporting more hospitality people in need than ever before. We were there for the waiters and chefs, event planners and kitchen porters, restaurateurs and food operators, to make sure that every member of our community had somewhere to turn in their hour of need. With UK hospitality set for an uncertain time one thing will remain set in stone; HA will be there to lend a helping hand when times get tough.

Of course, we can only be there thanks to the generosity of our fantastic supporters. A great way to get involved and kick start our New Year fundraising is to attend one of our renowned events! Not only will you network with industry greats, have a fantastic time and enjoy delicious food and wines but the money we raise will help people just like Rebekah, Daniel and the Ellis family. Be sure to save the following dates so you and your colleagues can attend one of the following fantastic events:
