Hospitality Action, the charity for those in the hospitality industry who have fallen on hard times, will return to the Beaufort Polo Club in Gloucestershire on Sunday, 8th September to host its fourth annual polo day. The day will include a three-course lunch prepared by four award-winning South West chefs: the Michelin two-starred chef Martin Burge of Whatley Manor, Michael Benjamin of Calcot Manor, the Michelin-starred chef Hywel Jones of Lucknam Park and Sam Moody of The Bath Priory.


The day will begin with a champagne reception on the lawns of the club before the specially created three-course lunch, including a dessert of set vanilla butter milk with raspberries, white chocolate and pistachio crunch. Grandstand seats will be reserved for guests to watch the final of the Solitaire Salver before ending the day with a cream tea.


Sam Moody of The Bath Priory says: “Last year’s event was a fantastic hit with glorious weather, world class polo and an astounding £37,000 raised for Hospitality Action. Whether the charity is approached by a chambermaid, a school cook or a chef like me, they will endeavour to help, whatever the difficulty. Once again we all want to raise a great deal of money for this fantastic charity so it can continue to help those in need across the hospitality industry.”


A place at the polo day is the ideal introduction to “the sport of kings” and at just £80 per person or £750 for a table of 10, is the perfect day out. Discounted room rates for the Sunday evening are also available at each of the partnering chef’s hotels.


Last year Hospitality Action spent more than £60,000 assisting hospitality workers in desperate need in the South West. To secure your place contact Giuliana Vittiglio on 020 3004 5504 or at fundraising@hospitalityaction.org.uk.
