Industry charity Hospitality Action is urging all those with ties to the hospitality industry who have fallen victim to the floods to contact them for support. Following on from the bad weather at the start of the year, many across the UK have been suffering due to the adverse conditions, including flooding, heavy rain and high winds. Hospitality Action is urging all those across the industry who have been personally affected to contact them for assistance.
Penny Moore, Chief Executive, Hospitality Action, says: ‘If you are a hospitality industry employee experiencing personal difficulties due to the continuous bad weather, please do get in touch. Many homes have been damaged, causing unexpected financial distress for many hardworking individuals and families in the affected locations. We are here to help those in need and will assess each case on an individual basis.’
Hospitality Action is the trade charity offering a crucial lifeline to people of all ages, working and retired, from the hospitality industry. Whether we’re approached by a chef, chambermaid, school cook or barperson, Hospitality Action will endeavour to support them, whatever their difficulty. In 2013 Hospitality Action spent £508,000 supporting past and present hospitality workers who had fallen on hard times.
