The Hospitality Action Dinner at will take place on the 20th July with the restaurant donating £25 per guest to the charity and will feature a charity auction.
Liam Dillion commented: “Chef Matt is the ‘godfather’ of the midland food scene. I have enormous respect for what he has done in the industry. Now not being able to be in the kitchen he is still pushing to make a difference and I admire him for this.
“I’m fully supportive of his charity work, which helped him so much in an extremely difficult time. It’s going to be another great event and it’s a privilege that Matt wants to hold the event at The Boat Inn.”
Matt Davies added by saying: “I know just how tough it can be to navigate a career in hospitality after a life changing incident. I’m a proud ambassador of Hospitality Action, which offers vital assistance to those in the industry. I can’t wait to get back in the kitchen with Liam for what is set to be a really special night.”
