Good news stories
"Not only is hospitality one of the UK’s biggest revenue generators, employing more people than the aeronautics, pharmaceutical and automotive industries combined... but what even is a community without restaurants? Hospitality Delivers is a way of keeping track of the brilliant ways the industry is fighting back, and allowing those of us who love it to help with our support. "
Marina O’ Loughlin, The Sunday Times Restaurant Critic
Here we highlight a selection of recent good news stories that show the length and breadth the hospitality industry is going to in order to support the emergency services and society's most vulnerable.
A non-profit initiative from Lido, a café/bar and brasserie in Troon on Scotland’s West Coast, has reached a fundraising milestone as it donates £5,000 to Hospitality Action.
An increase in new dog owners and sustained daily walking habits for locals has contributed to the popularity of Lido’s daytime pop-up, which offers takeaway breakfast, lunch, coffee and cakes from 9am-4pm seven days a week.
As well as the donation to Hospitality Action, of which Lido owner and operator Buzzworks has been an avid supporter, additional profits have been allocated to supporting Buzzworks own people via the Buzzworks Wellbeing Fund.
The Lido Troon pop-up is in addition to the existing Lido To Go takeaway which continues to operate from 12pm Thursday-Sunday. Troon residents can order all their Lido favourites to go including wood-fired pizzas and indulgent desserts as well as freshly prepared cocktails or at home cocktail kits.
