Without a doubt, these have been very challenging times, particularly for the hospitality industry with continued restrictions and lockdowns that have taken their toll on the people who make our hotels, restaurants, bars and cafes places of fun, friendship and community.

There is hope for hospitality businesses, but they need our help.

Together with Stoddart NZ, Restaurant & Cafe magazine has created an online auction called Hands Up 4 Hospo on TradeMe. With an array of items donated by a cross-section of New Zealand businesses the willingness to give has been a ray of hope in an otherwise dire situation.

Led by Stoddart NZ, we are pooling our resources to drive the Hands Up 4 Hospo Auction, with the backing of some fantastic suppliers who have stepped up to put their support behind the project by donating items for the auction.

Hands Up 4 Hospo online auction on TradeMe is for the benefit of hospitality businesses, and businesses can apply online to share in the proceeds of the auction. (see below)

If you’d like to donate an item for the auction (click through below) or would like to know more, please get in touch.

A little donation from many means that collectively we can help hospo keep the lights on.
