The first H&C EXPO Golf Day took place last month and saw industry leaders from across the hospitality and catering industry come together with the aim of raising much needed awareness and profile for both The Clink Charity and Foxes Academy.
Competitors included caterers, suppliers, restaurateurs, ex-rugby professionals, celebrity chefs including Brian Turner, while chef Cyrus Todiwala OBE and CEO of The Clink Christopher Moore both assumed the role of caddy for the Day.
Meiko UK took part and MD, Paul Anderson told us: “It was a superb event and all for great causes of which I’m delighted to support on behalf of all at Meiko UK.”
The team from Meiko joined the day to battle it out for team and individual trophies in the H&C EXPO Charity Golf Day.
Charities to benefit included The Clink Charity and the Foxes Academy.
Continues Anderson, “What a stunning course and we also had the benefit of the first rain seen for weeks!! Count us in for next year.”
Good job Meiko UK were quick as the 2019 event sold out as soon as it was announced for July next year.

Commenting on the huge success of the debut H&C EXPO Golf Day, Denis Sheehan, publisher, H&C News, said: “It was the perfect start to an exciting new event in the hospitality industry calendar. It was a relaxing and fun way for people across our industry to come together and most teams and players stayed on to take in day one of H&C EXPO with some staying for day two also.
