Burn The Silence

Ignite The Conversation

Donations

At Pilot Light we are dedicated to contributing to real change in the hospitality industry. This means we want to create content, resources and information for all staff who work in hospitality to have access to for free.

We are raising money so that we can make a difference and burn the stigma attached to mental health problems for good. In order to do this, we need your help. If you would like to raise money through a dinner evening, a fundraising event (anything from a sky-dive to a cook-off!) or any other type of event and would like to make a donation, please click on the button below.

This is the hospitality industry supporting the hospitality industry. We love to celebrate people and businesses who help this cause, so please do let us know how you fund-raise so we can show off on our social media pages! Send photos and stories to info@pilotlightcampaign.co.uk

Your support is so valuable to us and we wouldn’t be able to continue this journey without you.

    I had a head chef, who, after I first tried to kill myself really stepped up to help me. He was really supportive. Really drove me. But still I could not speak. I just always said I’m okay. And there are times where I still say ‘I’m okay’... Read More

  • Ben Davy

    For me it was culmination of 5 or 6 years of a particularly hard slog. Taking on more, stretching myself too thinly, never learning to say 'no'. Read More

  • James Hudson

    I have battled mental health issues since around my 16th birthday. I had just finished school and all the stresses of exams and bullying through school to losing my father suddenly overnight. Read More

    As a fledgling restaurateur I found myself feeling responsible for every little thing that went wrong. Read More

  • Mark Hill

    I, like any addict, will always be an addict. But I make it my first step of every day to try and be addicted to the good things in life, the things which make me and the people around me happy and positive. Read More

We cannot do this alone! Together, we can create a community of like-minded professionals united by a common cause: to shine a light on these issues and act as a beacon of support to those affected by them.
