Social Sunday

On Sunday 7th July our teams took part in a departmental switch up, with our expert Passadores swapping knives for cocktail shakers, and our floor team taking to the flames in the kitchen for ‘Social Sunday‘.

All six of our restaurants, including our sister brand Picanha, saw a departmental shuffle during the Sunday evening service to celebrate this special day, with all proceeds from food sales being donated to Hospitality Action.

We had a fantastic time, and it was a brilliant opportunity for team members to build stronger relationships, and step outside of their comfort zone – all for an amazing cause.

Who are Hospitality Action?

Hospitality Action are true heroes within our industry. Established all the way back in 1837, they offer vital assistance to anyone working in hospitality in the UK who find themselves in a crisis.

They help to support people with a range of issues such as life-altering illnesses and domestic abuse, people who have retired from the industry but are struggling with isolation and loneliness, and running educational seminars that help to present catering students with the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse. We’re so pleased that the money you have helped us to raise for them goes towards such fantastic causes.

We wholeheartedly believe in everything Hospitality Action stands for.

How Much Did We Raise?

We’re delighted to announce that across all of our restaurants we raised an incredible £18,200!  This wouldn’t have been possible without you, our Fazendeiros, and so we are endlessly grateful to every single one of you who helped us contribute to this amazing cause on Social Sunday.
