Spread some warmth this Christmas

For many of us working in the hospitality industry December is a blur of hectic services, celebrations with colleagues and time with our families. But, for some former hospitality workers it’s a time of loneliness solitude and hardship. Show your colleagues they’re not invisible by sharing some warmth this Christmas.

You could simply text WARM18 70070 to donate £10 which could go towards helping one of our Golden Friends with their energy costs this winter. Or, get involved in one of the other exciting activities listed below.
