Get Involved. Companies supporting our COVID-19 campaign.
During the COVID-19 crisis we have been overwhelmed by the support we’ve received from businesses across the UK. As the public replaced trips out with lockdown brands have mobilised to show solidarity in all sorts of ways.
We have a whole host of partners who have developed special products, Instagram events, raffles and who have together raised tens of thousands of pounds to help hospitality workers in crisis.
Here’s a selection of the amazing products you can buy to support our work, and a roll call of some of the amazing individuals and organisations who have gone the extra mile to do their bit as our industry faces an existential crisis the likes of which we have never seen.
Camden Town Brewery
Since the widespread closures began Camden Town Brewery have been hosting regular events on Instagram, from open mic, to virtual pub quizzes. Not only that but anyone who leaves us a tip, the good guys at Camden Town Brewery will double!
Be sure to give them a follow
VIVIR is smooth in texture & complex in nature & is perfect for sipping or having in your favourite cocktail. It's a sophisticated Tequilla that takes the drink to a whole new level. And they're donating £2 from every bottle sold via their website.
The Duppy Share
One of the first brands to mobilise in our honour, The Duppy Share have developed a home rum kit so their loyal fans can have their favourite drink at home.
You will receive one 20cl bottle of their award winning rum, 2 x 200ml bottles of Fever Tree Light Ginger Beer and 2 of our epic gold cups to enjoy at home in-front of Netflix or a film. Fever Tree has also kindly donated product for the Home Rum kit in an effort to support the initiative - further cementing their place as the greatest mixer ever.
Renegade Urban Winery
Already taking Instagram by storm this is your chance to riddle and disgorge a delicious bottle of 2019 Sparkling Grenache courtesy of Renegade Urban Winery. When this medium bodied bottle of red arrives at your home prepare to have some fun! You don't need to be a wine professional to open the bottle, but be prepared that you may get a little dirty. Open outside if you can…
10% of all sales will be donated to our Emergency Appeal.

Put the kettle on while your order arrives
The Comfort Cookbook
Top chefs, food and drink producers, and industry insiders from across the West Country have come together in a show of solidarity in the wake of the Covid-19 crisis.
Cornwall Content, The Maverick Guide & Ali Green Photography have pledged to create a digital cookbook as a snapshot of the unique and diverse food and drink culture in the West Country, and the rich network of chefs, producers and pioneering entrepreneurs which together make the South West a world-class gourmet destination. Here are just a few of the chefs involved so far:
Nathan Outlaw, Jude Kereama, River Cottage, Michael Caines, Paul Ainsworth, Ben Tunnicliffe, Mark Dodson, Mick Smith, Ben Prior, Simon Stallard, Emily Scott, Elly Wentworth, Madeleine Olivia, Tia Tamblyn, Philleigh Way Cookery School & Daaku.
REAL came to prominence through the excitement and enthusiasm of innovative chefs like Matt Campbell, Jamie Park and Tom Peters. In these difficult times, with so many of our friends now out of work, we’re keen to help support them in any way we can.
Check out their website where you can choose to donate to HA in return for a recipe.
Eyes down. Dabbers have elevated the game of bingo into something that's captured the imagination of a whole new generation of young players. Their legendary nights feature fantastic food, a party atmosphere and some big winners.
During the lockdown they've taken the party online.
Gather your mates and book your place now
Our good friends at Creed Foodservice are now able to offer members of the public access to their next day click and collect service. If you shop on their site there's an option to donate to the appeal while paying for your groceries.
Commit your commute
If you’re now working from home because of COVID-19, there’s one plus side: you’re likely saving a fair bit of money on travel. An average of £5-£7 per day, actually.
Unfortunately, not everyone is lucky enough to have WFH as an option. Thousands of independent restaurants, bars, pubs, and arts venues all over the country have been forced to close.
So, while you break out the laptop, why not donate some of your commute money to Hospitality Action and help some of the people COVID-19 has already hit the hardest?
Every single day we're inspired by those who have gone the extra mile to help us. Either by giving generous donations or by sharing our message and helping us fundraise. We're so grateful for everything you've done for us.
If you're running a fundraiser please contact us and we'll add you to this page and shout about your efforts across our social media.
