Help For Hospo: donate to help hospitality workers who are doing it tough in lockdown. It's time to serve those who serve us.


The impact of COVID19 has been profound for the hospitality industry - and for those who work within it. Nearly 170,000 Kiwis work within the NZ hospitality industry. We know them well - the barista who makes our morning coffee, the waiter at our local spot, the chef behind our favourite meal, the bartender who serves our favourite drink, and the friendly voice who takes our order and assures us it will be ready in 10!

Those familiar faces who take such care to look after us, valued members of our “hospo family”, are doing it tough at the moment. Right now, for many, their focus is not putting food on the table for customers - but on putting food on the table for themselves and their families.

So, a small group of people put their heads together to talk about how they could help quickly, resulting in #helpforhospo.

Blair Duncan, of Red+White Cellar, was moved to act after hearing stories from within the industry of people needing assistance - particularly those trying to support dependents. Blair’s initial donation of $10,000 has now been matched by others and #helpforhospo created as a means to distribute those funds.

Use of funds

All funds raised will be distributed directly to hospitality workers in need (not businesses) who apply via the Help For Hospo website.
