Burn The Silence

Ignite The Conversation

Donations

At Pilot Light we are dedicated to contributing to real change in the hospitality industry. This means we want to create content, resources and information for all staff who work in hospitality to have access to for free.

We are raising money so that we can make a difference and burn the stigma attached to mental health problems for good. In order to do this, we need your help. If you would like to raise money through a dinner evening, a fundraising event (anything from a sky-dive to a cook-off!) or any other type of event and would like to make a donation, please click on the button below.

This is the hospitality industry supporting the hospitality industry. We love to celebrate people and businesses who help this cause, so please do let us know how you fund-raise so we can show off on our social media pages! Send photos and stories to info@pilotlightcampaign.co.uk

Your support is so valuable to us and we wouldn’t be able to continue this journey without you.
