4 years in, UK hospitality talent partner mum have teamed up again with us here at Caterer.com, along with Peoplebank, to raise funds and awareness for the incredible work that Hospitality Action do to provide financial and personal support and to those in need within our hospitality community.
When and the Where
This year on Sunday the 8th of October there will be 5 separate hosted 20km walks across the UK in London, Bath, Bristol, Birmingham, Manchester, and Glasgow. There’s also the option to ‘Walk It Your Way’ at a location of your choice any time between the 30th of September and the 15th of October. The Walk For Wellbeing initiative was designed for flexible participation, so whether you like some friendly competition or fancy a leisurely stroll with family, friends, or colleagues – you can take on the challenge however suits you best.
P.S. the hosted walks are pet-friendly too, so feel free to bring alone your four-legged friends!
