Buzzworks Holdings donates £10,000 to Hospitality Action amid coronavirus pandemic

Independent bar and restaurant operators Buzzworks Holdings has made a £10,000 donation to UK charity Hospitality Action, amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The donation will provide funding for the charity, which offers a range of support services for people working within the hospitality industry, including a 24 hour hotline for advice, counselling sessions on stress, addiction and abuse, alongside grants for help with debt or short term money concerns.

The donation comes as the Scottish hospitality industry faces an uncertain future, with bars and restaurants closing throughout Scotland and the UK in a bid to help contain the spread of coronavirus.

Buzzworks, which manages twelve prestigious venues across Ayrshire and beyond, temporarily closed the doors to all of its restaurants and bars on 20 March in line with government guidelines.

Kenny Blair, managing director said:  “Having built our family business for over 40 years, we would not be in the position we are in without our dedicated Buzzworks team. With so many putting themselves forward to take on temporary work to support those most at need within the community, that commitment has shone through once again and this makes us feel incredibly proud.

“Where we can, Buzzworks are helping those volunteers find the appropriate job roles, whilst we continue to monitor developments regarding the virus and put plans in place to reopen stronger and better than ever – when the time is right and it is safe to do so.”

Buzzworks Holdings currently manages 12 venues, which include, Scotts in Troon, Largs and South Queensferry, Vic’s and The Vine in Prestwick, Lido venues in Prestwick and Troon.
