If ever there was a time for the vital support, expertise and advice that Tim Etherington-Smith’s Healthy Hospo offers, this is it. The past 20 months have taken their toll on the hospitality industry and frontline workers in many ways – emotionally, financially, mentally – everyone has gone through all of these and a whole lot more. Some have come through it, albeit with scars – again, emotionally, financially and mentally. Others? Not so much. Including Tim.
Since its launch four years ago, Healthy Hospo has inspired thousands of hospitality professionals around the world to live healthier, happier lives through its pioneering training programs and digital platform, a first for the hospitality industry. Which is why it’s particularly cruel that at a time when the support it provides is needed most, the business is facing closure.
As Tim admitted this week: “We have watched our partners, our friends, and the industry we all love go through the most challenging time any of us can remember. Since the pandemic arrived we’ve done everything we can to support the industry including launching the first dedicated health and well-being focused training app. Yet despite our best efforts, the industry is not OK, and as a result, Healthy Hospo is not OK either.”
As a result, he’s looking to raise £10,000 so he can continue providing the work he does so well. Any amount will do – from £5-£500 – every penny will go towards the Healthy Hospo health and wellbeing app which provides vital tips on everything from stress and anxiety to sleep and human connection. In short, everything we all need to keep in good mental and physical health in these troubling times.
