Atherton, Singh and Kochhar are Hospitality Action chef patrons.

Singh commented: “I’m delighted to support Hospitality Action as having spent a lifetime in our incredible sector, this is the most welcoming and supportive of fraternities. Every now and again, our own may fall on hard times and may need to be supported; Hospitality Action do just that.”

There will also be a prize draw of exclusive experiences and overnight stays to raise funds for Hospitality Action, which seeks to support those in the hospitality industry, especially those affected by the cost of living crisis.
