Celebrated chefs Monica Galetti, Mark Sargeant and John Campbell last night hosted a special fundraising dinner within Brasserie Joël at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge London. The event raised a fantastic £17,500 for industry charity, Hospitality Action.
John Campbell Chef Proprietor of Michelin Starred, The Woodspeen Restaurant says: “I am delighted that the evening was such a great success! Last year Hospitality Action spent over £632,000 supporting our colleagues in crisis. The £17,500 raised tonight will give hope to all those suffering within our industry and let them know they always have somewhere to turn.”
Lending support throughout the evening was Brasserie Joël’s Head Chef Walter Ishizuka. Hospitality Action is grateful to all event sponsors including BaxterStorey UK, Udale, Belu and Oranka Juice Solutions and prize donors including Condé Nast Johansens who donated a fantastic £500 worth of gift vouchers towards the evening’s fundraising. 82% of the people Hospitality Action helped in 2015 were below the age of 60 and 34% were suffering from life changing illness. The money raised at this special event will enable Hospitality Action to continue it’s vital work.
