Initiative launched to improve mental health

An industry-wide initiative has been launched to promote better mental health in the hospitality sector and support the work of charities Hospitality Action and CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably).

The Walk for Calm initiative is scheduled for the 24 October. It will see a series of socially-distanced 20km fundraising walks taking place in locations across the UK, including London, Birmingham and Manchester.

Hospitality businesses and people from across the sector are being encouraged to unite and get involved.

“It’s time to not only highlight the importance of looking after our own mental health, but also promote well-being at every opportunity,” says Walk for Calm creator Craig Prentice. “Walk for Calm is an opportunity to come together to do just that while supporting Hospitality Action and CALM and the terrific work they do – please walk, support and donate if you can.”

Sports and leisure caterers can sign-up to take part by heading to the website.
