Blog. Covid19 Emergency Appeal
March 17, 2020 | Author: Mark Lewis
The latest government advice which discourages the public from visiting hospitality outlets has triggered an unprecedented crisis which puts many thousands of livelihoods at immediate risk. We are coordinating an industry-wide emergency appeal to support those hospitality workers impacted by widespread job losses, reduced hours, pay and even closures due to the Coronavirus.
We urgently need to build a significant fund to enable us to make a one-off award to eligible workers suddenly facing hardship.
To be effective in meeting the anticipated demand we need to secure funds before we can open the scheme for grant applicants so we urgently need the industry to mobilise. We won’t be able to help everybody who applies, but with your support we will reach as many people as the fund allows.
Please give whatever you can today and leave a note in description that it is for the Covid-19 Hospitality fund.
