On Sunday 8 October, Visit West and Meet Bristol & Bath will join local hoteliers in walking 20km between Bath and Bristol as part of Hospitality Action's Walk for Wellbeing. 

Now in its fourth year, the Walk for Wellbeing invites Britain to put on its walking shoes and join Hospitality Action to take strides towards promoting better wellbeing for all while raising funds to support its vital work.

Currently, over half of those contacting Hospitality Action for support directly reference mental health issues. The overwhelming majority are also struggling with household debts, with many facing the threat of court action or eviction. Nearly half are working in public-facing roles, including bar staff, waiting teams and baristas. Since the start of 2020, Hospitality Action have helped more people than ever, answering 26,809 helpline calls and delivering 6,753 face-to-face and over-the-phone counselling sessions. But there is still so much more to do. 

Every penny raised from Walk for Wellbeing supports those working in hospitality facing challenging times. No matter how much money you raise, your participation is what’s important, and helps Hospitality Action take crucial steps towards promoting wellbeing across the hospitality industry.

On Sunday 8 October, Visit West and Meet Bristol & Bath will join members of the The Bath Hoteliers Association and The Bristol Hoteliers Association to walk 20km between Bath and Bristol. Starting at 10am, the 20km route will start and end at two points, The Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa in Bath, and the DoubleTree by Hilton Bristol City Centre. The walk from each hotel will take participants along the Bristol & Bath Railway Path, a 13-mile car-free route on the National Cycle Network, which connects the two cities. 

The money raised will be spent on:

  • Supporting the 1 in 2 people with mental health issues that contact Hospitality Action for support.
  • Delivering in-person and phone counselling sessions.
  • Providing emergency grants to put food on the table.
  • Easing the pressure of rising food and fuel costs for those households forced to choose between heating and eating.
  • Clearing arrears for households at immediate risk of homelessness, providing essential relief, security and ultimately improved wellbeing.
