The Aim: 1000km (625 miles) in 31 days across the great state of Texas, what could go wrong? Well potentially the heat, my lack of ability on a bike, maybe a rattlesnake or two, so why have I volunteered for this?
Well I'm taking part in this challenge to raise money and awareness for the thousands of incredible people who work in the hospitality community who have been affected by the Covid 19 pandemic.
I know there are a great number of people across a range of industries that should be recognised right now, I chose hospitality because I have worked shoulder to shoulder with these incredible folks for over 25 years and I just wanted to give something back to all the bartenders, baristas, servers, chefs and hoteliers out there.
My idea is to split any money raised between charities in the 3 main places I have spent my career, the UK, the US and India. I have started 2 Just Giving pages for both the US Bartenders Guild and The Drinks Trust UK and I shall also be donating a percentage to the Taj Public Welfare Trust.
