The date has been set for the first ASAP fundraiser for Hospitality Action, and its work with our colleagues across the industry who are struggling with physical, financial and mental health problems.

If you can support us financially, every £1 counts!, you can donate here:

The date will be the week of Monday 25th – Friday 29th January, and all members of the ASAP community are welcome to participate – even the ASAP team are getting involved!

Those taking part will be asked to complete sponsored miles of exercise in any way they want (treadmill, exercise bike, swimming pool, running track, mountain bike, kid’s bike, spacehopper… you get the idea) in a place of their choice, depending on the COVID restrictions in place at the time.

And we’re asking everyone taking part or helping others in training, to share photos and updates to keep the momentum going.

ASAP’s Charity Champions are planning to include any ASAP members, Suppliers and Buyers who are interested in joining in, and on the day, individuals and marketing teams will be encouraged to share photos and updates with ASAP and with Hospitality Action, as well as across their own channels for maximum impact.

It’s a great opportunity to bring the ASAP community together in a fun way and a really positive way to start the year – so please come and join the existing Champions:
