I just wanted to take this opportunity and say a BIG THANK YOU to all our wonderful customers for their support over the past 3 months in helping us raise funds for the hospitality industry.
The government-mandated closures on 21st March 2020 had a resounding effect on the industry, resulting in waiters, chefs, bar staff and many other key members of staff unable to work. Even now, post lockdown, the result of the counter measures taken by government to curb the spread of COVID-19 has left the hospitality sector facing a monumental crisis with many businesses on the brink of collapse and some in a position unable to re-open without support.
Having spent my formative years working in the hospitality sector I wanted to help out where possible, so when one of our suppliers got in touch with their Help 4 Hospitality initiative, I gladly agreed to take part in their scheme and donate a percentage of our revenues from a qualifying range of wines we sold.
I am proud to say that to-date, from our humble abode in the village of Ledston, Hic! has been able to raise almost £1000.00 toward the industry we have so much affinity with.
Thank you all for your continued support in helping us achieve this total and we will endeavour to continue in our efforts to support those in the industry who need it most.
