Restaurants from across the Marco Pierre White Restaurants group will be raising money to help relieve the financial hardship of those working in the UK hospitality sector by asking guests to add a voluntary one pound to their bill.
The initiative will run through December 2020 to March 2021 and via the Black and White Foundation* the monies raised will be donated to three different charities including Hospitality Action, which supports members of the hospitality industry who are in financial difficulties, Pilot Light which is raising awareness of mental health issues within hospitality and Street Smart which tackles the issue of homelessness.
Robyn Lee, the marketing director is now hoping diners will be generous enough to add the one pound to their bill which will then give help to those who need it most.
She said: “It’s important that, where we can, we give help to those who are less fortunate than ourselves and although the hospitality sector, like many others, has been hit hard during the pandemic, doesn’t mean we stop raising money and helping those that need our help.
“One pound might not sound like a lot, however, if collectively everyone who dines with us across all our restaurants during this time contributes, will mean quite a substantial pot of money to hand over. You could say that those who eat out with us really will be helping out those in need!
“We’ve chosen these three beneficiaries as they are all linked to the hospitality sector so resonates closely to all the teams who work in the restaurants.”
* Black and White Hospitality owns the franchise rights to a number of Marco Pierre White restaurant brands. The Black and White foundation, is a charity registered in England and Wales (1183631), was established to benefit worthy causes within the local communities in which the business operates.
