The last year has been a struggle for everyone. Not being able to go out and socialise with family and friends in a pub or restaurant, staying at home eating and drinking too much, trying to keep yourself sane and keep yourself from putting on the weight whilst binge watching series on TV. With all this in mind, to hear that Hospitality Action are setting a challenge for 2021 called ‘To Hell and Back’ to raise funds for the hospitality industry, I was more than excited to get involved.

Hospitality Action are asking for our support in this year’s funding raising event, whether it be walking, cycling, or running to a total of 30,000 miles overall. So we at Jellybean, have put together a team called ‘It’s Bean Emotional’, 17 of us are pledging to travel 535 miles on a virtual tour from our office in Leatherhead to Cornwall and back again. The training has now started, and we are ready to do our part for the industry (as well as remove a few pounds on the way).

Whilst training, I have started to think, how nice it is going to be now that we have an end in sight and the doors are slowly opening back up again. I am personally looking forward to getting back out there and visiting my favourite pub ‘The Anchor Tap’ in Horsham for a few Craft Beers or sitting down for a delicious rump steak sandwich and a pint at ‘The Black Jug’ in Horsham, which I have missed so much.

If you would like to show your support for our team and our industry charity, you can donate and view our progress at
