As you may know, the hospitality industry has been one of the hardest hit through the pandemic. With government regular changes to restrictions some venues have been unable to open and forced into making redundancies and even closing business for good.
So many of our best memories consist of going out for meals and we take for granted how important these venues are to us. Whether we are out for a celebration, sharing some exciting news, catching up with old friends or generally just in need of a pick-me-up to lift our spirits, restaurants play such a crucial part in our happiest moments and we owe it to them to keep our favourites kicking around.
There have been great efforts so far to reach out for support and to raise awareness of the struggles but now the National Restaurant Awards have come along with this massive push for the beloved industry.
Estrella Damm presents an amazing online charity auction with some incredible once-in-a-lifetime food & drink prizes up for grabs and if your a lover of food and fine dining this is something you need to enter. The auction is raising funds for charity Hospitality Action, who offer a range of support for the hospitality sector to help them get back on their feet when perhaps life has taken an unexpected turn such as Covid-19. Their services range from offering advice to deal with mental health issues and providing information on personal and business finances that have taken a hit due to the pandemic.
Bringing together some of the UK’s best chefs and restaurants, with over a 100 very generous prizes of which could be yours, the likelihood of winning something seems pretty high. From exclusive masterclasses to even food fuelled getaways, the prizes are truly exceptional and all donations will go directly to Hospitality Action to help support the community and those in need. You have until the 6th September 2020 before 10pm to submit your donations and any amount will make a massive difference and go along way.
Please do share this incredible auction with friends, family and colleagues and we thank you in advance. Best of luck!
