HBAA members have raised a total of £44,000 for charity Beyond Food in 2017 and 2018.

The money was generated at a variety of events and activities including the association’s Annual Dinners, Annual Forum, Members Meetings and Come Dine with Me.

The charity, founded by restaurateur Simon Boyle, supports the homeless by helping them to learn catering industry skills so that they develop careers in the hospitality sector.

Louise Goalen, Chair of the HBAA in 2017 and 2018 says: “Our members have clearly been inspired by this wonderful cause and Simon Boyle’s campaign to help people in need in this way. The stories of the people that Beyond Food has helped are heart-warming.”
