Chris Gamm, speaking at Public Sector Catering Awards
The 30th edition of the Public Sector Catering Awards took place last week and raised £4,980 for industry charities Springboard and Hospitality Action.

The Public Sector Catering Awards aim to highlight and celebrate excellence in catering by recognising individuals and teams who have made a ‘significant’ contribution over the past year. Eighteen Awards were handed out on the night including the Lifetime Achievement Award which went to NACC chair Sue Cawthray.

The money raised on the night will be evenly split between Springboard and Hospitality Action. Springboard supports young people into jobs in the hospitality industry via its employability training programmes that includes one-to-one mentoring, soft skills and employability development (confidence, work attitude, CV building, interview practice, time management), practical industry and hard skills training including food safety and customer service, as well as access to work experience placements. 

Hospitality Action was launched in 1837 and it aims to offer financial, physical or psychological support services to help people from hospitality get back on their feet. As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic the work of Hospitality Action is more important than ever.
